NEW MARKET, AL (WAFF) -
New details have emerged about the driver responsible for a school bus crash that sent at least three people to the hospital.
The crash happened Thursday on Butler Road in New Market. Thirty-three kids were on board when Jerry Suggs crashed into the bus.
A background check on Suggs showed that he has had numerous convictions for improper lane changes and speeding. He also pleaded guilty to not wearing a seat belt, has multiple counts of reckless driving, failing to stop at a stop sign, driving with a suspended license and one guilty plea for passing a school bus in 2004.
Suggs was also charged with manslaughter two years ago for an accident that resulted in a woman's death, but the charges were dropped.
Suggs has been released from the hospital and police said they are expecting to file a report about the crash next week.
