Tour Bus with 19 Passengers Overturns on I-20 in GA, Driver Charged with DUI

A bus crash on I-20 near mile marker 186 and Exit 185 in Columbia County injured at least nine people Thursday morning, according the Georgia State Patrol.

"Some of the witnesses that were on the bus at the time, they said that this had happened on two occasions previously from their trip to Atlanta - where the driver had gone off the right side of the roadway and brought it back onto the lanes", Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Chris Wright told ABC affiliate WJBF in Augusta.

Authorities say the bus driver ran off the side of the eastbound lanes of Interstate 20 and overcorrected, causing the bus to overturn in the median. Sixty-one-year-old Steven Hoppenbrouwer is also charged with failure to maintain lane.

Several passengers were taken to the hospital, but troopers said none of the injuries were life-threatening. He said jail records did not list an attorney for Hoppenbrouwer. The station reports seven other people are either in fair or critical condition at another hospital.

The bus is owned by Jet Executive Limousine, the state patrol said.
