Monday, Aug. 18 | By Julie Taylor
A pickup truck slammed into a school bus in Hume on the first day of school.

Around 7:20 this morning, a Dodge truck, driven by Leocadio Perez-Lopez, 58, of Culpeper, crashed head-on into a Fauquier County School bus in the 5400 block of Washwright Lane, according to Lt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.

About a dozen middle- and high-school students were on board, but none were hurt.

The children were picked up by another bus, and taken to school.

Perez-Lopez was charged with no valid operator’s license.
