On Feb. 17, at 2 p.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department  received a report of a school bus on its side located on Rhein Hollow Road about 1.5 miles west of Dutch Ridge Road in Wauzeka Township.

Donald Noel, 66, Steuben, was operating a 2010 Bluebird School Bus eastbound on Rhein Hollow Road. Noel was negotiating a left curve, when he lost control of the school bus due to the snow-covered roadway. The school bus entered the south ditch and came to rest on its left side. Noel had just completed dropping off his last student and was en route back to the Wauzeka bus garage prior to the crash. 

Noel claimed no injuries from the crash. Noel’s passenger, Wannetta Noel, 66, Steuben, received minor injuries. Noel was later transported by private vehicle to a medical facility to be checked out.

Assisting at the scene were the Wauzeka Fire Department, the Wauzeka First Responders, the Crawford County Highway Department and Milo’s Towing.
