On Friday afternoon, April 29, Columbia Police Department officers were dispatched to a two-vehicle collision on Campbellsville Street near the intersection of Fairground Street. Upon arrival, witnesses stated to officers they had been behind one vehicle involved, a white Chevy Traverse on Highway 55, and stated it had been repeatedly all over the road and reckless before the accident coming into town.

Officers were able to review video from a local business on Campbellsville Street and observed the Traverse veer into the southbound lane before making contact with a private bus from Somerset Christian School, which was occupied by nine juveniles as well as the driver.

Officers performed onsite field sobriety tests on a male subject who was operating the Traverse and also located a substance believed to be methamphetamine on the subject, who also had seven active warrants from Pulaski and Lincoln counties.

Paul Schilling, 45, of Somerset, was taken into custody and is facing multiple traffic charges as well as 10 counts of first-degree wanton endangerment; possession of methamphetamine, 2nd offense; operating on a suspended operators license; and DUI 2nd with aggravated circumstance.

Officer Joey Keith was the arresting officer. He was assisted on scene by Officer Josh Durbin.
