A 29-year-old school bus driver has pleaded not guilty to 35 counts of aggravated assault from a crash that occurred last November.
According to FOX 17, Christina Mathis was indicted in April on 35 charges of aggravated assault and one charge of reckless endangerment for her role in a school bus crash that occurred on Interstate 65 last November.
Records indicate that Mathis was transporting students from Chester County High School when she lost control of the bus and struck a guardrail, causing the bus to overturn.
23 students were injured in the accident with two students suffering critical injuries.
Mathis initially told investigators that steering issues and high winds caused the accident; however, an inspection of the bus showed not mechanical defects. Authorities believe speed was a factor in the crash.
