Minn. school bus driver accused of DWI in crash

WINONA, Minn. (AP) — A school bus driver in southeastern Minnesota is accused of being drunk when he lost control of a bus carrying five children and crashed into a ditch.

Fifty-four-year-old Karl Allen Herber of Rollingstone appeared in court Wednesday on a third-degree drunken driving charge. He later posted bail.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says Herber was driving a Lewiston-Altura school bus Tuesday afternoon when he crossed the center line, drove into a ditch and struck several trees.

The sheriff says neither Herber nor the five children on the bus were hurt.

According to the criminal complaint, Herber had a blood-alcohol content of 0.09 percent. Lewiston-Altura superintendent Jeff Apse tells the Winona Daily News (http://bit.ly/1fxRL4w ) the district has a zero percent standard for school bus drivers.

No attorney was listed for Herber.
