SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have ticketed a teen driver involved in the crash of a pickup and school bus in southwest Iowa last month, saying the boy was texting when the crash occurred.

The Iowa State Patrol tells the Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil (https://bit.ly/2mngYv2 ) that 18-year-old Drew Graham has been ticketed on suspicion of texting while driving, driving on the wrong side of the road and not wearing a seat belt.

Authorities Graham’s truck hit a bus leaving Sidney Junior-Senior High School grounds the morning of Feb. 22, causing minor injuries to the 60-year-old bus driver and two students on the bus.

Graham was critically injured and was flown to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. He is expected to recover.
