Teacher charged with DUI after hitting bus



Published: Thu, April 21, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



AUSTINTOWN -- An elementary school teacher has been charged with DUI and placed on paid administrative leave after running into a school bus Wednesday morning on her way to school.

Shortly after 8 a.m., a vehicle driven by Beth M. Kleja, 50, struck the rear of the bus that was parked at Lloyd Elementary School where she teaches second grade. No one was injured, and both vehicles sustained minor damage.

Kleja, a teacher with the district since 1979, is to appear May 9 in Mahoning County Area Court.

Police said they administered a field sobriety test that Kleja failed. A blood test was performed, but results aren't expected for at least a few days.

Kleja has no prior DUI offenses, police said.

Superintendent Stan Watson said the paid administrative leave is effective immediately.

"She won't be in class until the investigation by police and our investigation is complete," he said.

After the investigations have concluded, the school district will determine the appropriate action, he said. He declined to specify the possible actions.
