School Bus Hit By Drunk Driver In Ocean City

School BusA school bus was hit by a drunk driver in Ocean City on Wednesday resulting in a Pennsylvania man facing DUI charges.

At approximately 7:00am  on Wednesday, July 20, the school bus driven by Donald Moore of Berlin, MD was hit by a 2015 Lincoln sedan driven by Kyle Alexander Kenney of Orrtanna, PA.  The incident occurred on Route 50 on the Harry Kelly Bridge in Ocean City.

After the collision, both vehicles continued a short distance and stopped at Philadelphia Avenue at Talbot Street.  Damage to the vehicles was minor and there were no injuries to either driver or to the two children, ages 7 and 8, riding the bus at the time, according to police.

After submitting to field sobriety tests, Kenney was charged with DUI and police reported that he assaulted a trooper while in custody.  Kenney was subsequently charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, second-degree assault, DUI, DWI, driving under combined influence and negligent driving.  He is being held on a $5,000 bond at Worcester County Jail after appearing before the District Court Commissioner.

Being charged with DUI is a serious offense.  When it involves another vehicle and other people, it is even more serious…especially when children are involved.  Don’t complicate an already difficult situation.  If you find yourself in need of representation on a DUI chargein Maryland, don’t waste another second.  Every second counts.  Contact the experienced Maryland DUI attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC for your free case evaluation now.
