School Bus Rollover In Bella Vista

Students from Bella Vista Arkansas had a scary ride yesterday morning as the bus driver Benjamin Owens age 73 lost control of the bus and ran off the road and then over corrected sending the bus over on it's side. Owens and two other students were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Officers administered a drug and alcohol test at the scene on Owens which showed no signs of drug or alcohol use. As standard procedure Owen's blood was drawn and will be sent off to the crime lab for evaluation. He is suspended without pay from driving until the investigation is completed. Witnesses say that water over the roadway may have caused the bus to hydroplane.
