BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho State Police says the driver of a school bus was at fault for a Dec. 5 collision with a dump truck that killed an 11-year-old boy.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/1j7jnT1 ) the investigation found driver Debra Boatwright stopped at a stop sign west of Kuna, but then pulled in front of a dump truck that wasn’t required to stop at the intersection.

The crash killed sixth-grader Daniel Cook and injured four other children. Boatwright was taken to the hospital suffering from extreme emotional distress.

Canyon County Prosecutor Bryan Taylor will decide whether any charges are filed. County officials say they are awaiting results of blood tests done on both drivers.

School district spokeswoman Melanie DeLashmutt says the district hasn’t seen the report yet and doesn’t have any comment.
