EAGLE, WI (WTAQ) - A Waukesha County man paid dearly by helping a turtle cross a road.
Sheriff’s deputies said a school bus avoided hitting the turtle – but the vehicle struck and injured a 70-year-old Eagle man.
It happened Monday on Highway 59 near Eagle.
Authorities said the bus driver slowed down after seeing the man. However, the victim did not see the bus – and he stepped back in the vehicle’s path.
The bus was going about 15 miles an hour when it hit the man. He was taken to a Waukesha hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The bus had 49 children, three teachers, and two parents. Nobody on the bus was hurt
