A Sparta woman accused of hitting a school bus while under the influence has been accepted into the pretrial intervention (PTI) program. According to the New Jersey Herald, Rita McCormick will undergo rehabilitative services instead of jail time and her charges will be dismissed when she completes the program.
The 60-year-old is accused of rear-ending a school bus on the morning of November 26 and was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault by auto and motor vehicle summonses. A 7-year-old and the driver of the bus were reportedly injured in the accident.
