School Bus Crash-Denver

A former Denver bus driver who smashed into a house while taking some children home from school is being ordered to write letters to the kids, and perform community service.

A judge also sentenced 59-year-old Katherine Sierra to driving safety classes, and told her NOT to drive commercial vehicles for two years.

Sierra pleaded guilty in September to three counts of careless driving resulting in injury.

She originally faced 25 counts of careless driving for the April accident.

Nineteen children were hurt, but Sierra says she's glad none of the injuries were serious.

Denver Public Schools fired Sierra after the crash.

She'd been a bus driver for six years.

Students say it looked like she was reaching for a sweater just before the accident.
