A 58-year-old north Florida school bus driver is accused of driving under the influence following a crash early Thursday.

Officials say no students were on board when the bus failed to navigate a curve, hit a road sign and land down an embankment just before 6 a.m. Thursday.

The bus was trying to exit onto Interstate 10 from Interstate 295 when the crash happened, troopers said.

The driver and her passenger, a 62-year-old school bus monitor, were not injured in the crash.

Troopers arrested the driver on charges including DUI.

The name of the driver was not released.

An investigation is continuing.
