HOPKINS, MI (WHTC) - An unnamed driver is in custody after a hit-and-run crash involving a Hopkins school bus yesterday afternoon.
According to Michigan State Police troopers from the Wayland post, the bus was stopped for a stop sign on 138th Avenue at 30th Street when it was hit from behind by a white, older-model, four-door Pontiac Bonneville. The car then went to the right, through the stop sign, and drove southbound on 30th Street with heavy front-end damage. The bus driver and eight elementary students on board were not hurt.
Tips led troopers to a residence in Salem Township, where the car was spotted, and the at-fault driver was taken into custody without incident. That driver is in the Allegan County Jail, awaiting a probable Monday arraignment in Allegan District Court on various charges.
The crash remains under investigation.
