Driver Used Fake Name

February 22, 2008, 10:21 AM

Driver Used Fake Name
A Minnesota woman was charged Friday with four counts of criminal vehicular homicide and two lesser charges in a school bus crash that killed four children.

Alianiss Nunez Morales, 23, of Minneota, was driving a van that failed to stop at a stop sign Tuesday before hitting a bus carrying 28 students from Lakeview School. The accident happened near the small town of Cottonwood, in southwestern Minnesota.

Lyon County Attorney Richard Maes said Morales was also charged with a stop sign violation and for driving without a valid license.

Authorities said Morales is not the woman's real name. Minnesota State Patrol spokesman Mark Peterson said authorities had asked immigration officials to help them identify the woman in custody.

The criminal vehicular homicide charges are felonies, each punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. 

One of the students hurt in the bus crash was released from Avera McKennan hospital in Sioux Falls this morning.
Five people are still at Avera McKennan, four of them are students. Their conditions range from good to serious.
Another student was taken to Mayo Clinic to be closer to family. There is no word on that patient's condition at this time.

KELOLAND News is in Southwest Minnesota today and will have more on Morales's court appearance later today.
