TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Authorities say a Florida Panhandle school bus driver was killed in a crash while driving a high school track team back from a meet.

The Leon County Sheriff's Office reports that 65-year-old William R. Fowler II was transporting students and coaches back to Florida State University High School early Friday morning from a regional track meet in Jacksonville. Back in Tallahassee, just a few miles from the school, authorities say a car turned in front of the bus, causing the crash.

Two students and two coaches from the bus were treated for minor injuries at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

The driver of the car was arrested at the scene and charged with driving under the influence.
