DOUGLASS, Kansas – A bench trial has been set for the man accused of driving a bus full of students into a creek on Halloween.

Morris Peterson’s trial is set for April 2nd.

Peterson is accused of driving a bus of 10 students into high running water.

The bus overturned, and the students, including Peterson, had to be rescued.

Peterson lost his job with the Douglass school district shortly after.

Last month, Peterson pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment and reckless driving charges.
