Cops say James Sommer was taking Plainedge 7th graders and a teacher to the Cold Spring Harbor Labs when he backed into a tree limb. The district attorney says he had an open bottle of bourbon in the bus when he was arrested.
His arrest follows two unrelated incidents this month on Long Island in which school bus drivers were charged with drunken driving.
A girl from the bus accident was taken to Huntington Hospital with minor injuries following the bus accident.
