Woman charged in wreck involving preschool bus

A woman has been charged in connection with a wreck involving a preschool bus that carried six children Monday morning.

Charline Allen, 46, was charged with driving while license revoked and cited for a red light violation, according to Wilmington Police Department Spokeswoman Linda Rawley.

The wreck occurred at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Dawson Street just before 7:30 a.m. Monday. A vehicle headed east on Dawson Street struck the bus as it traveled on Fifth Avenue. Six children and the driver were on-board.

“City officials are grateful to those civilians who assisted police and fire-fighters with removing the children from the bus,” Rawley said.

The driver suffered minor injuries, but no children were injured in the wreck, Rawley said. The incident tied up Monday morning traffic on Dawson Street for more than an hour.
