April 25, 2008

Twelve people have minor injuries after a bus driver fell asleep at the wheel and the vehicle veered off the road and turned onto its side about 40 miles north of Raleigh, North Carolina.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says 29 passengers were aboard the Greyhound bus when the wreck happened early Tuesday morning along U.S. 1, near the Virginia state line.

The bus ran into a ditch, rolled onto its right side and slid about 100 feet.

A patrol spokesman says the injured were taken to a hospital and the bus driver was charged with careless and reckless driving.
