Man injured while helping turtle cross road
EAGLE - 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 yesterday 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.
