TOWN OF BRADLEY, Wis. -

A 73-year-old bus driver is suspected of falling asleep behind the wheel and crashing his coach bus in Lincoln County last week.

The crash happened around 6 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 8 in the Town of Bradley.

The driver told a deputy a tire on the bus blew, causing him to go into the ditch. However, passengers on the bus said the driver fell asleep and when they yelled at him to wake up, he went off the road.

WSAW-TV reported deputies are waiting for statements before deciding on any possible action against the driver.

All of the passengers on the bus were adults. No one was hurt.
