Bus Driver Gets DWI Charge

Long Island bus driver, Frederick Flowers, was charged with a DWI on Thursday “after he crashed a mini-school bus carrying five children into a house.” Police officials accused Flowers, who is 66 years old, of violently driving under the influence of alcohol and putting in danger the lives of 5 children– all were passengers in the bus. Fortunately, nobody was inside the “Syosset” house when the bus crashed through its garage door around 3 p.m. on Wednesday. Flowers was driving the children back home from St. Edward the Confessor Elementary School, which is located right across the street from the crash location.

Officials stated that “Flowers, was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the accident on Wednesday and remained hospitalized Thursday, police said. The five children, ages 5 through 9, weren’t hurt.” The police officials also assured that Flowers will be detained at his hospital bedside as soon as they can.

Maureen Richmond, who is a spokeswoman for the bus company that employees Flowers, stated that “Mr. Flowers is suspended from his job at First Student… and results for a full internal investigation are pending.” Under New York’s Leandra’s Law, Flower’s five counts of DWI charges are automatic felonies.
