Police say 58-year-old Susan Lipscomb was behind the wheel of a special needs bus in Charleston, W. Va., Thursday morning. She rear-ended a car on a highway, causing it to catch on fire. There were six children on her bus at the time. Two of them were taken to the hospital with injuries that appear to be not life-threatening.
