Man arrested for DUI after allegedly hitting empty school bus
OKLAHOMA CITY – A San Antonio man was arrested after being involved in an accident with an empty school bus.
On Thursday, officers were called to an accident involving three vehicles, including a school bus, near S.W. 29th St. and Cemetery Rd.
Investigators learned that 63-year-old Benjamin Linduff had failed to yield right of way from a stop sign.
According to the arrest affidavit, officers discovered an open bottle of Jim Beam bourbon in Linduff’s vehicle.
Linduff reportedly told officers that he was headed to San Antonio and had just left his sister’s home in Drumright.
When asked how he ended up at the intersection, he reportedly said, “I have no idea.”
The arrest affidavit claims that Linduff admitted to drinking two beers that afternoon. The report also alleges that Linduff had slurred speech and smelled like alcohol.
Linduff was arrested on complaints of driving under the influence, transporting an open container and failure to yield right of way from a stop sign.
Fortunately, the other drivers were not seriously injured in the crash.
