PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Authorities say they have made an arrest in a hit-and-run involving a Prince George County school bus on Monday.

Twenty-six-year-old Cierra Brockwell, of Sussex County, was arrested a day after the crash and charged with failure to stop at the scene of an accident, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving – failure to yield right-of-way, disregarding a stop sign and operating an uninsured motor vehicle. 

Police said she is being held at Riverside Regional Jail without bail. 

Officers were called to the crash just after 3:15 p.m. at the intersection of Prince George Drive and South Crater Road. Police said officers arrived on scene and received a report that a black Acura Integra, with primer paint, hit the front bumper of the bus. 

Immediately after impact, officers said the driver of the Acura pulled off to the side of the road and detached the car’s rear bumper, which was hanging from the car. Police say the female driver then removed the license plate from the front bumper before leaving the scene.

No injuries were reported on the bus. Officers said 25 students, from middle school, junior high school and high school were on the bus at the time of the crash. 

Both vehicles had minor damage as a result of the crash.
