Baker County-- A Seminole County school bus, with 40 kindergarten and first graders on board, is hit by a car in Baker County, but no one was injured.

The crash happened about 2:00 on Highway 91, about one mile from the Dougherty-Baker County line. 35-year-old Erin Chliveny of Albany, driving a 1998 Mazda, crossed the middle line and ran Michael Mercer's Ford Van off the road into the ditch.

Chliveny turned around to check on Mercer. When she saw that he was not hurt, Chliveny did a U-Turn, right into the path of the school bus. The students had been in Albany for a school function.

The Seminole County students waited on the side of the road for 45 minutes, until another bus came to pick them up. The wrecked school bus was able to drive back to Donalsonville.

Chliveny was charged with failure to maintain lane and improper U-turn.
