The driver of a Denver school bus that crashed into a house last month has been fired.

Nineteen people were injured in the accident east of downtown Denver. There were no serious injuries.

Denver school district officials say they determined that 58-year-old Katherine Sierra caused the accident.

Sierra also faces 25 counts of careless driving resulting in injury and will be arraigned on the charges June seventh.

Authorities say she lost control of the bus and smashed into a parked car before crashing into the front of a house.

Sierra was hired by Denver Public Schools in October 2002.
