New Jersey school bus driver accused of DWI after crash

It is difficult to be a school bus driver in New Jersey and in other areas across the country. It is not unusual for one person to be in charge of both driving a large motor vehicle while also ensuring that the young passengers on board are behaving. Though distraction may be understandable, police say that it was actually drugs that caused a recent school bus crash, resulting in a DWI charge against the driver.

The accident happened on a day in February. Witnesses reportedly watched the bus moving slowly before it crashed into a tree. Police say that rescue workers discovered the bus driver, a 57-year-old woman, unconscious when they arrived on the scene.

First responders reportedly revived her with Narcan, and she was taken to the hospital. Of the 12 special needs student on the bus, none were injured during the collision. Though police say that there were "clear signs" indicating that they woman was probably under the influence while driving, it is unclear what those signs were.

Unfortunately, the New Jersey woman faces multiple charges. In addition to DWI, she is charged with 12 counts of child endangerment in addition to possession of drug paraphernalia. While navigating through the criminal justice system can be complicated and confusing in the best of circumstances, it may seem especially overwhelming for someone recovering from a car accident. As a result, the woman may turn to an experienced professional to help her throughout the process. Such a professional may allow her to have confidence in the decisions she makes going forward.
