FAWN, Pa. (AP) - A dispute between two teenage boys on a school bus in western Pennsylvania ended in a street brawl involving a crowbar that left one teen critically injured, authorities said.

The two Highlands School District students, ages 14 and 17, were arguing on the bus Tuesday when the older teen opened the emergency exit and ran out when the bus stopped on a road in Fawn. The younger boy followed, grabbing a crowbar that was mounted near the bus driver, authorities said.

The 14-year-old then hit the 17-year-old in the knee with the crowbar, authorities said, but the older teen soon got control of the crowbar. He then repeatedly hit the younger boy in the stomach and head, causing several skull fractures and other injuries.

Allegheny County police charged the 17-year-old with attempted homicide and aggravated assault. He suffered a leg injury in the brawl and was treated at a hospital.

Authorities have not said what the two boys were arguing about.
