High water from a series of heavy rains that started over the weekend spelled trouble for USD 257 bus driver Chad Turner and a middle school passenger Monday morning.

Turner’s bus was disabled before sunrise Monday after water from the swollen  Rock Creek got into the engine compartment.

The incident happened as Turner was crossing a bridge along 2200 Street, about two miles north of U.S. 54, or the old drive-in corner.
