Carol Ann Frasier, 53, of Lebanon the bus driver involved in a Tuesday afternoon traffic accident was released on bond Wednesday after being charged with DUI and Reckless Endangerment.

Her bond was set at $6,000. Frasier is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on July 18.

Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said Frasier is suspected of being under the influence of the medication while driving her school bus, with around 30 high school students onboard, Tuesday afternoon.

At approximately 3 p.m., Frasier reportedly failed to stop for stationary traffic at a stop sign on Harding Drive at the intersection with Park Avenue, near Lebanon High School. Bowen said her bus collided with an SUV, driven by a juvenile whose identity is withheld because they are under age.

The SUV then rear-ended with a passenger vehicle being driven by Ronnie Watson, 51, of Lebanon. Watson was transported to University Medical Center due to minor injuries. Bowen said Frasier was also taken to UMC for complaints of possible injuries.
