Posted: Updated:

A Fayette man was hospitalized after a school bus crash on Monday.

Michael James Carey, 74, was north on J Avenue, about seven miles west of Arlington, in a West Central school bus just after 4 p.m. when he lost control, causing the bus to go into the ditch, according to the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.

Carey was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Oelwein for medical evaluation.

Deputies say there were no kids on the bus because Carey had just finished dropping off students when the crash happened.

Damage to the bus is estimated at $3,500.

The crash remains under investigation.
