A Delaware man has been arrested for what will be his seventh DUI after he crashed into a parked school bus and then passed out.
According a report from Delaware State Police Troopers, the accident occurred at approximately 10:10 a.m. on Thursday at the First Student Transportation bus yard located in Newark.
When State Troopers arrived on the scene, they found John R. Owens, 57, passed out behind the wheel of his Dodge Caliber.
Investigators reports that Owens entered the bus lot, struck the rear of a parked school bus and then exited the lot only to later return and collide with a chain link fence before passing out in his vehicle.
Emergency crews transported Owens from his vehicle in the bus lot and to the Christiana Hospital for evaluation. He was not injured in the crash.
State Police have charged Owens with DUI, Driving while Suspended and driving with No Valid Proof of Insurance.
While it’s true to say that no one should ever get behind the wheel and drive while under the influence of alcohol, the truth is that everyone can make mistakes. Some people have a tendency to repeat the same mistake over and over again. Laws are much tougher on those who drive under the influence on numerous occasions.
