Motorist charged with DUI after hitting special-needs bus

Posted on May 2, 2014

PRICEVILLE, Ala. — A motorist was arrested last month and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after he sideswiped a school bus full of special-needs students and then continued driving, WHNT reports.

A student had just disembarked the bus when the motorist, James Joshua Warren, rounded a curve in his car and struck the bus. Witnesses told the news outlet that the car then kept going, but only for a short distance — Warren pulled into his driveway, parked and went into his house.

Alabama state troopers later arrested Warren and charged him with DUI, which was not his first offense. No students were injured in the incident.
