CENTERVILLE — A school bus driver who told police he was "daydreaming" when he rear-ended another bus, injuring four students, has been cited.

The 35-year-old Centerville man was driving a Centerville Junior High bus Thursday afternoon and was issued a ticket for following too closely, a class C misdemeanor. The man's name was not immediately released.

Both buses were northbound on Main Street near 1400 North a little after 3 p.m. when the cited driver's bus hit the back of the other, causing broken windows, dents to both buses, and four students to suffer minor injuries. All students were treated at the scene and released. The two buses were transporting a total of 61 students.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were believed to be factors in the crash.

The drivers of both buses were placed on standard paid administrative leave pending the outcome of drug testing by the Davis School District.
