BP: School bus driver fell asleep before Polk County crash, patrol says

LENGBY, Minn.—The driver of a Grand Rapids, Minn., bus that crashed and injured a dozen students last month in eastern Polk County apparently fell asleep at the wheel, the Minnesota State Patrol has determined.

Stephen David Charnley, 57, was cited with duty to drive with due care in relation to an early May bus crash near Lengby, Sgt. Jesse Grabow said in an email. The State Patrol's investigation is complete, he said, but the case in Polk County District Court still is pending.
