A Monmouth County school district is reviewing its procedures after it was discovered a school bus driver involved in an accident with 37 students aboard

MANALAPAN - A Monmouth County school district is reviewing its procedures after it was discovered a school bus driver involved in an accident with 37 students aboard had a suspended license.

None of the children were injured when the bus slid off a road and hit a lamp post and tree in Manalapan yesterday.

Manalapan-Englishtown Regional Schools Superintendent John Marciante Jr. says the driver has been fired.

In a message posted on the school district's website, Marciante said the district had received notification from the Motor Vehicle Commission that there were several bench warrants issued for the driver and her license had been suspended. However, the information wasn't acted upon.

The district has since reviewed the status of all drivers.
