New Jersey school bus driver charged with DWI

Bus drivers have difficult jobs. They are often tasked with managing the behavior of multiple students while also maintaining their safety while driving a large vehicle. Often, passengers may create distractions that make it difficult for a driver to stay focused on the road. Unfortunately, a bus driver in New Jersey is now facing accusations of driving while intoxicated, DWI, after the bus she was reportedly driving was involved in what appears to be a minor accident.

The incident reportedly happened at approximately 7:30 a.m. on a day in late April. According to reports, a 57-year-old woman was driving a bus filled with 28 students to a technical school. Unfortunately, she allegedly failed to stop her bus in time, causing it to strike the rear of an unoccupied bus.

Police say that eight people suffered minor injuries in the incident. Reports also allege that she was under the influence of prescription medication at the time of the accident; alcohol is not believed to have been a factor. It is unclear how police determined she was intoxicated or what medication they believe she took.

She now faces multiple DWI-related charges due to the location of the incident as well as the age of the passengers on the bus. Despite the claims made by New Jersey police, there are many questions about the incident that appear to remain unanswered. Regardless of law enforcement reports, the woman is presumed innocent unless sufficient evidence is provided to prove that she is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt -- a standard that is often difficult to meet. She may choose to seek professional guidance to help her understand the options available to her.
