Police say a school bus driver who crashed into a New Jersey home was driving drunk at the time.

Anthony Stuckey, 37, faces charges of driving while intoxicated and 15 counts of endangering the welfare of a child. The school bus driver had just dropped off students at Essex County Technical School when his bus slammed into a home around 8:30 a.m. Friday in West Caldwell, New Jersey.

Police pulled Stuckey out of the wreckage, and he was treated for minor injuries on scene. No one else was on the bus at the time of the crash.

It appears the bus driver failed to manage a tight turn nearby. Police were investigating to see if there was another cause for the crash.

“It can be managed, but people who are driving at excessive speed limit or not paying attention, it creeps up on them quick,” said Police Chief Dennis Capriglione.

Police also say that Stuckey did not have a proper commercial driver’s license to operate the bus.

Neighbors have seen similar accidents in the area previously, which is why there is a steel barricade to protect homes as drivers come around the bend in the road.

In this case, Stuckey seemed to oversteer. Police say he crossed the dividing line and clipped a black minivan before careening into the house

The homeowner is a man named Siva Thangam. He left around 5:15 a.m. to get to work at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he teaches.

The crash left the home’s foundation compromised, which means Thangam will have to find somewhere else to live until repairs can be made.

  1. Oh America when will you start punishing drink driving offences properly. A punishment for drink driving is not a smack on the wrist as it seems to be here in America. Drink driving is the same as wandering around firing the occasional shot anywhere and hoping you miss anyone. Having business in Europe where I travel frequently if you drink and drive you are considered a pariah and deserve a harsh punishment its also a criminal offence you are then on the European wide D.N.A. database,lucky you. A years ban from driving is mandatory then try and get insurance,double, triple or quadruple your last insurance quote if you are lucky, forget about hiring a car for at least 10 years as it is in the UK or some EU countries. Kill someone and the skies the limit and no insurance company would ever touch you or quote you ridiculous amount of money in the tens of thousands. A new French law when it comes into force says you have to carry your own official breathalyzer kit no silly roadside sobriety tests, and woe betide not having one, 500 Euro fine and make sure of it’s expiry date. I feel much safer driving late at night at road junctions that I ever do in America as the chance of some drunken lunatic beating the lights is minimal.
