Allegedly drunk driver hits Coralville bus


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A Coralville bus was involved in a side-impact crash with a driver who reportedly had been drinking Monday afternoon.

The driver of a Toyota SUV and the bus were at the intersection of Iowa Avenue and Riverside Drive.  The driver hit the bus — which was in the outside left hand lane — and kept going.

An Iowa City police officer said the bus driver followed the SUV and continued honking before the driver of the SUV pulled over on Jefferson Street.

Police arrived on scene to reportedly find the driver asleep — although he later allegedly admitted he had been drinking prior to the accident.

The man was later taken into custody, and animal control retrieved a dog in the vehicle.
