ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) — A Hardin County Schools official says the driver of a bus that crashed into a home with 50 children on board appeared to have a seizure.

HCS Community Relations Specialist John Wright tells the News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1SamkSf) that recorded video from inside the bus revealed 38-year-old Jennifer Leon appeared to have a seizure just before the crash on Monday.

Wright previously told media outlets that some students had cuts and bruises, but none were seriously injured.

He says the district is waiting for official medical confirmation from physicians regarding whether Leon had a seizure. After that, district officials will decide whether Leon will drive a bus again for the district.

Holders of commercial driver’s licenses must be medically certified as physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle.
