WASILLA, Alaska - Alaska State Troopers say a driver attempting to elude police crashed into a school bus.

No students were on board during Tuesday's crash in Wasilla.

Troopers say the motorist who hit the bus had been driving recklessly and disobeyed a command to pull over.

The driver, 36-year-old Rachael Kennedy of Wasilla, was treated for minor injuries at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. She was then arrested for felony drunken driving, eluding arrest and driving on a revoked license.

She remained in jail Wednesday.

Troopers say Kennedy's small red car was totaled and the bus sustained $3,000 worth of damage.

The bus driver escaped injury.
