PALMYRA TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A school bus driver is accused of slamming a student's head off the wall inside the bus.

Danielle Lavin, 37, of Hawley is charged with aggravated assault.

Officials say she assaulted the 6-year-old boy last month because she didn't like how the child was seated.

Authorities say Lavin is the boy's legal guardian.

Lavin was charged with aggravated assault on a victim less than 6, endangering the welfare of children, and simple assault. She is free on bail.
