A man has been arrested for driving under the influence after the charter bus he was driving to the first round of the Masters flipped on a Georgia highway Thursday morning.

The bus, en route to Augusta National Golf Club, flipped on Interstate 20 at approximately 8:45 local time Thursday morning.

There were 18 passengers on the bus, and 14 of them have been taken to two area hospitals, at least five of whom suffered serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries, according to Augusta’s WRDW News 12.

Steven Hoppenbrouwer, 61, was charged with driving under the influence and failure to maintain lane, per an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report.
