Car crashes into WV school bus leaving one dead — DUI charges imminent

Charleston, WV — On Wednesday evening at about 5:30 near Rt. 52 in Breeden, Mingo County, Wendell Lewis Perry was driving his car erratically when he swerved into a school bus, according to witnesses.

The driver of the bus was not injured and fortunately no students were on board.  However, Randolph Marcum, a passenger in Perry’s car, was killed in the crash.

According to the investigation, beer cans and several pill bottles were found on the floor of Perry’s car.  The investigating deputy said he smelled alcohol on Perry’s breath.

Perry was taken to the hospital. Deputies said he is facing charges of DUI causing death.

Please take this as a reminder of the deadly risks involved each time someone drives drunk or under the influence of drugs.  Our prayers go out to all the families affected by this tragedy.
