SALT LAKE CITY -- No charges will be filed against the driver of a bus involved in a fatal crash in Idaho.
American Fork High School band teacher Heather Christensen, 33, was killed when the bus rolled off of Interstate 15 approximately 2 miles north of McCammon, Idaho on Oct. 10.
The bus was one of four carrying the band home from a competition in Pocatello, Idaho.
The driver of the bus, Debra Jarvis of Spanish Fork, told investigators she began suffering from a stomachache about 10 minutes after leaving Pocatello and then blacked out.
The Deseret News reports Jarvis told police, "All of a sudden, I had a pain in my stomach that felt like a knife stabbing me. The next thing I remember, I woke up hanging sideways from the seat belt."
Idaho prosecutors say there is no reason to pursue charges against Jarvis because she didn't know she had a medical condition that would impair her operation of a motor vehicle.
