A Racine County school bus driver has been cited for operating while intoxicated, after his bus veered off a road and went in to a corn field with children on board.
The Sheriff’s Department said the crash was observed by a citizen along a west end Town of Waterford road. The bus driver got back on the road and was later ordered by deputies to pull over along a highway, corn stalks still hanging from the undercarriage of the bus.
Officers found two children on the bus, unhurt, although there had been four on board at the time it left the roadway.
The 39-year-old driver was issued a first offense Operating While Intoxicated citation with passengers 16 or younger, along with hit and run causing property damage, failing to report an accident, and unsafe lane deviation.
