SANTA MARIA, Calif. - A Goleta woman accused of driving and crashing an Amtrak bus while under the influence of meth will have to wait another month for her trial.

51-year-old Laura Mae Gish appeared in a Santa Maria courtroom on Wednesday.

The California Highway Patrol arrested Gish in January after the bus she was driving crashed on the 101 freeway near Los Alamos.

25 passengers were onboard when it slammed into a tree. Multiple people were hurt.

The judge changed her trial date from December 11 to January 13.
