The driver killed in the northeast valley crash that injured more than 30 students last week has been identified.

She was 70-year-old Maria Delourdes Castillo, the Clark County coroner’s office said. She was a Las Vegas resident.

On the morning of May 4, Castillo ran a red light and collided with a Bailey Middle School bus carrying 48 students, Las Vegas police said. A 10-year-old riding inside the Ford Taurus with Castillo survived but suffered critical injuries.

After the collision, the bus tipped, sending more than a dozen students, as well as the bus driver, to local hospitals.
