DINWIDDIE, Va. - A bus driver involved in an accident in southeast Virginia that killed three people will pay a $200 fine and lose her driver's license for six months.

Court records show 56-year-old Louise M. Vanloan of Greensboro, N.C., pleaded guilty Thursday to reckless driving in Dinwiddie County General District Court. Her driver's license was suspended.

The Virginia State Police has said Vanloan was driving a charter bus carrying North Carolina AT&T students when it hit a pickup truck. The bus pushed the pickup into a logging truck. Three people in the pickup were killed.

The accident occurred Nov. 11, 2011, on Interstate 85 in Dinwiddie County.
