LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The driver of the SUV that crashed into a Longview ISD school bus has been arrested on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated.

The school bus was on route to drop off students after school when an SUV crashed into the back of the bus.

It happened on the corner of 14th Street and Cotton at about 4:20 this afternoon. Authorities say wet roads played a role in the accident. They say the driver of the SUV was going too fast, hit the brakes and hydroplaned into the back of the bus.

A total of 15 students were on the bus. Of those, four were transported to Good Shepherd Hospital with minor injuries. A passenger of the SUV was taken to the hospital for minor injuries as well.
