"Some of our trauma nurses from ICU actually came down to the emergency department to augment the staff". Time to lock this alchy bus driver up for life.

According to a statement from Georgia State Patrol that was given to WRDW, 61-year-old Steven F. Hoppenbrouwer was the driver of the bus, and he will be charged with DUI and Failure to Maintain Lane.

"We know that there are multiple injuries", Columbia County sheriff's Lt. John Sherman said.
