The driver in a school bus stop crash near Rochester that killed three children and injured a fourth will be in court Tuesday.

24-year-old Alyssa Shepherd faces three felony counts of reckless homicides and a misdemeanor count of passing a school bus with its safety arm extended.

Her pretrial conference will take place shortly after 1 p.m., to determine if the case will go to trial or if a plea deal will be presented by prosecutors.

Shepherd claims she did not recognize the school bus as she approached it on October 30.

The four children that were hit were crossing the street to board the bus.
