Students stop school bus after driver stricken

Driver faints, but kids take charge

A dozen students returning to school after spring break in Milton, Wash., knew what to do when their bus driver slumped over the wheel unconscious. Surveillance video shows Jeremy Wuitschick, 13, rushing down the aisle and grabbing the wheel on Monday morning as other students yell: "Call 911!" He removed the keys and turned the steering wheel to pull the bus over. Deputy schools superintendent Jeff Short said Tuesday he had no update on the condition of the 43-year-old driver, who was hospitalized in "grave condition" Monday. The driver's wife asked that no details about him be released, Short said.

School workers get lottery share

Two public school teachers and a school administrator are sharing part of last month's record $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, Maryland Lottery officials said Tuesday. The winners claimed their proceeds Monday and chose to remain anonymous, but the lottery agency shared some details about them in a news conference. The agency said each works multiple jobs to make ends meet, and are now planning for trips to Europe, new homes and their children's college funds. One winning ticket also was sold in Kansas and another in Illinois. The Kansas winner claimed a share of the jackpot Friday, but also decided to remain anonymous. Nobody has come forward in Illinois.
