SCHOOL BUS DRIVER ACCUSED OF DWAI – Injures child

A Long Island school bus driver is accused of drinking before driving a bus full of children to a field trip.  He crashed the bus during a field trip in Cold Spring Harbor, injuring a 12-year old passenger.

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.
