DUI-charged bus driver terminated by school district

The bus driver who was involved in a crash and arrested on a DUI charge is no longer employed by the Richland One School District, according to a district spokesperson.

Officials 61-year-old Margaret Means was charged with DUI after she crashed the 1990 International school bus she was driving on Friday around 9:10 a.m.

South Carolina Highway Patrol investigators say Means had just dropped off a group of students before the accident.

According to the incident report, Means told troopers she had a liter of wine the night before, but had not consumed any alcohol that morning. The trooper noted in the report that Means smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and appeared to be unsteady on her feet.

When Means was given a field sobriety test, a breathalyzer revealed her BAC to be .17, which is twice the legal limit in South Carolina.
