Bemidji Pioneer: Students return to Grand Rapids as officers investigate why school bus driver lost control

LENGBY, Minn.—The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating why a Grand Rapids, Minn., school bus driver lost control of the vehicle before a Monday morning rollover sent him, a dozen students and a teacher to hospitals in northwest Minnesota.

The 22 high school students involved in the crash near Lengby returned home Monday after the bus they were in went into the median and overturned, Jessica Setness, a spokeswoman for the Grand Rapids-based Independent School District 318, wrote in an email. The bus was headed to the Great Plains Youth Institute in Crookston for a field trip when bus driver Stephen David Charnley, 57, of Bovey, Minn., lost control of the bus around 8:20 a.m. Monday, according to a news release from the State Patrol.
