New Jersey School Bus Driver is Arrested After Crashing Through a Home

Police say a New Jersey man is suspected of operating a school bus while intoxicated after hitting a home in the West Caldwell neighborhood early on Friday.

Anthony Stuckey, 37, was detained and is currently being prosecuted on several offenses, including 15 counts of endangering the welfare of a child and suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI). According to investigators, Stuckey had just dropped off pupils at West Caldwell Tech High School when the accident occurred.

Professor Siva Thangam of Stevens Institute of Technology was at his job when the school bus ran off the road and into his house. Thankfully, no one suffered a significant injury.

The damage was severe, [police] told me,” Thangam stated. “I asked him if anyone was hurt, and he responded there was no one hurt,”

Thangam is also relieved that day he wasn’t working from home because the bus smashed through the side of the house where his office was.

Thangam declared, “I would have been there if I was working from home, for instance, if it was a Saturday and I was working from home.”

Thangam’s neighborhood was blocked off while police conducted their investigation. Although some of their properties are already surrounded by stone walls or guardrails, neighbors have been complaining about automobiles rushing down a steep curve on the road for years.

Neighbor Richard Wilcox expressed concern that there have been and are still many accidents. Today was a similar one. Wilcox continued, “I believe the speed limit is dropped here, but people don’t anticipate that and they don’t slow down.”

The incident that occurred on Friday is not even the first to occur on Thangam’s property. He claimed that a vehicle had felled a tree in his front yard a few years prior.

Thangam explained that there was a car that lost control and crashed into a tree and some plants in the front. What can you do, he enquired. There are plenty of warnings telling you to drive slowly.
