Bus Driver Commended for Actions in Crash

Share this post

A Lake County man is being praised for his bus driving skills, keeping a bus with more than forty passengers upright after it was struck by a pickup truck on US 20 near Rolling Prairie Tuesday, an accident that claimed the life of the truck driver. Police tell the Times 60-year-old Michael Krzeczowski of Crown Point was behind the wheel of a Royal Excursion bus carrying patrons from a casino in New Buffalo, Michigan, when a pickup truck went out of control on the snow-covered highway near County Road 450 East. The driver of the truck, 36-year-old John Kallok of Griffith was pronounced dead at the scene. Reports say Krzeczowski was able to keep the bus on its wheels after the impact sent it to a cornfield, and he drove it through a shallow ditch and between two trees before it came to rest. Police say injuries to those on the bus were not considered life-threatening.
