DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. — A North Carolina tour bus driver was found guilty of reckless driving in connection to a deadly accident on Interstate 85 in Dinwiddie County.

Malverse L. Vanloan, 56, of Greensboro, was fined $200, ordered to pay $91 in court cost and had her license suspended for six months.

Authorities said Vanloan was driving a bus load of students from North Carolina A&T up Interstate 85 on November 11, 2011, when she drove her bus into the back of a pick-up that had slowed down ahead of her. The pick-up then reportedly slammed into a logging truck that had slowed in front of it.

The driver and two passengers in the pickup died at the scene.

Vanloan was wearing her safety belt at the time of the crash.

The students were traveling to a conference in Baltimore.
