Bus driver cited in crash that hurt 14

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The driver of a Greyhound bus that overturned on a central Pennsylvania highway, injuring 14 people, was cited Monday in connection with the weekend crash, which investigators said appeared to have been caused by driver error.

The accident happened at around 6 a.m. Saturday near the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Lebanon-Lancaster exit. Fourteen of the 18 people aboard were injured, but all were treated and released from hospitals and eventually continued on their journey, a Greyhound spokeswoman said.

The driver, Kareem Edward Farmer, 24, lost control while traveling in the passing lane, state police said. Farmer was cited with two summary offenses for not staying in his lane and causing a commercial vehicle to overturn, state Trooper Glenn Fields said.

Firing of nursing mom prompts ACLU suit

EVERGREEN, Colo. (AP) -- The American Civil Liberties Union intends to sue a Denver-area charter school for allegedly getting rid of a teacher who pumped breast milk on the job.

The ACLU of Colorado filed a notice of claim on Monday against the Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen. It alleges that the school failed to renew the contract of technology teacher Heather Burgbacher because of her pumping schedule.

Jefferson County school district spokeswoman Lynn Setzer said Burgbacher wasn't retained because her position was changed into an adviser to staffers and she wasn't a good fit.

Colorado employers are required to accommodate breastfeeding mothers.
