COVINGTON -- A Covington woman was charged after striking a school bus Tuesday morning.

The Georgia State Patrol charged Stella Gabrielle Pulliam, 44, of Covington, with failure to obey a traffic control device after running a red traffic light at the intersection of Crowell and Brown Bridge roads.

About 8:35 a.m. as the school bus entered the intersection, a 2010 Nissan Sentra driven by Pulliam ran the red light and struck the bus on the front end, according to Gordy Wright, public information officer for the Georgia State Patrol.

"No students were on the bus at the time of the accident," said Sherri Davis-Viniard, director of Public Relations at the Newton County School System. "Neither the driver, nor the monitor sustained injuries."

According to NCSS Transportation Department personnel, the bus had minor damages.

The newton sheriffs dept cannot get the drivers ed course too soon. Alot of adult drivers do not know how to drive just drive down Washington street and watch people try to use the turn lane or use the roundabout on Turner Lake and watch the drivers around the square, its not that hard people. I wonder if Stella was on her cell phone or applying make-up when she hit the big yellow bus
