No Children Involved in School Bus Accident In Beaver Dam

Authorities say a driver not paying attention was to blame for an accident this morning involving a school bus in the Town of Beaver Dam. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Department says 25-year-old Emanuel Leal-Sanchez was driving east on Highway G around 6:30 when he crossed the centerline and slammed into the back portion of a westbound school bus. There were no kids on the bus at the time and neither Leal-Sanchez nor the bus driver, 83-year-old Dale Schmidt, was injured. Authorities were on the seen for a couple of hours but the road was back open to traffic this morning. Leal-Sanchez faces charges of inattentive driving and operating without a valid driver’s license.
