Woman facing DUI charge after crashing into Pinellas school bus

ST. PETERSBURG — A 31-year-old woman was arrested on a DUI charge Tuesday after the car she was driving ran into a school bus, St. Petersburg police said.

Nancy I. Kavallierakis of St. Petersburg was arrested on charges of DUI, careless driving and refusing to submit to a breath or blood test. Court records indicate the arrest is at least the third DUI for Kavallierakis, who was being held at the Pinellas County Jail on Tuesday evening with bail set at $5,250.

No one was hurt in the crash.

Police said the crash occurred about 2:30 p.m. as a Pinellas County school bus was headed east on 30th Avenue N with three children on board. Kavallierakis was driving behind the bus with her 3-year-old son in the car, police said. As the bus stopped in the area of 24th Street N, Kavallierakis' car struck the back of the bus, police said.

It was unclear whether Kavallierakis will face a child abuse charge for having her child in the car with her while she was reported to be driving while intoxicated.
