According to police, Jarrett lost control of the bus on I-30, causing it to roll over multiple times.
FOX13 discovered Jarrett received a commercial license to drive a bus four years ago in June 2014, and it is set to expire in March 2026.
The state documents indicate that Jarrett is required to wear glasses or corrective lenses while driving.
According to the DMV, Jarrett had been involved in a crash in August of 2017 in Fayette County, where she lives.
Also, Jarrett had a driver’s license in Illinois. The DMV report mentions “offense activity” but never provides an explanation.
Jarrett was among those injured in the deadly crash. We are working to find out how she is doing.
