NORWICH, Connecticut — A school bus driver has been charged with driving under the influence after he was involved in a crash with seven students on board.

Nobody was injured when the bus hit a parked car Friday morning in Norwich.

Police say they determined that 30-year-old Edwin Gonzalez of Willimantic was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He is charged with DUI, reckless driving, two counts of risk of injury to a minor and second-degree reckless endangerment.

Authorities say Gonzalez didn't stop the bus after it hit the car, but he was caught a short time later. Police didn't say which school the students attend.

It was not immediately known whether Gonzalez has an attorney. He is to be arraigned at Norwich Superior Court on Monday.
