REFORM, Ala. (AP) - State troopers say an inattentive driver caused a crash that killed a west Alabama school bus driver.

Local media report Daniel Alexander Bunch of Aberdeen, Mississippi, was driving an SUV when he ran a stop sign and hit a Pickens County school bus. The bus hit a tree.

WBRC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Q6vMo5 ) a report release by state troopers says the SUV driver “stated he was not paying attention and did not see the stop sign.”

Bus driver Sharon Beard Hood died from injuries suffered in the April 10 wreck. At least two of 14 students on the bus suffered serious injuries.

Bunch hasn’t been charged with any crime. Pickens County District Attorney Chris McCool says he’ll review the report and could present the case to a grand jury in September.
