ARLINGTON, Iowa — An eastern Iowa school bus driver was sent to the hospital following a crash Monday, with no students aboard.

Michael James Carey, 74, of Fayette, was driving a West Central school district bus north on J Avenue seven miles west of Arlington when he lost control. The bus went into a ditch shortly after 4 p.m., according to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (http://bit.ly/1sYlCIt ).

Carey was transported to the Oelwein Mercy Medical Center for a medical evaluation. He had just dropped off the last student on the bus route before the accident.

The bus sustained approximately $3,500 damage. Arlington firefighters assisted at the scene. The crash remains under investigation.
