UPDATE: Wolverine Woman Accused of Driving Drunk, Hitting School Bus

The Cheboygan County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Wolverine woman who they say hit a Cheboygan school bus while drunk, then left the scene.

It happened April 16 around 3:45 pm in Wolverine, on East Main Street and South Straits Highway.

Deputies say Susan Banister was driving a Chrysler PT Cruiser when she crossed the center line on a curve, and hit the school bus near the center of the left side.

The bus was taking students home from Cheboygan High School when the incident happened. 

No one was hurt in the accident. Another bus came to pick the students up and take them home.

Banister was originally arrested and charged for operating while intoxicated, a fourth offense. Her previous offenses noted in state files were somehow destroyed. 

Now, Banister will only be sentenced for operating while intoxicated as her first offence. She will be sentenced next month.
