Sterling Heights, MI (December 15, 2021) – A school bus driver in Michigan was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after she crashed the bus she was driving. It was occupied by 30 to 40 students at the time, according to reports. 

Information from the Sterling Heights Police Department indicated that the incident occurred on Hall Road near Schoenherr Road at approximately 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 14. A female was driving a Utica Community Schools bus carrying Henry Ford II High School students when it left the roadway and struck a street sign.

She was immediately arrested and transported to the Sterling Heights Police Department for questioning. Her name has not been released at this time.
