PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — A Prescott Valley man has been cited for failing to heed a stop sign, leading to an accident that injured two students aboard an elementary school bus.

Prescott Valley police said 58-year-old Clifford Deane was taken to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries. They say the SUV that Deane was driving collided with the Humboldt Unified School District bus at an intersection around 8:15 a.m. on Thursday. Police investigators said they do not suspect that Deane was driving impaired.

They said 44 students were on the bus at the time of the collision. The two children transported to a hospital are only being identified as a 6-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl.

Police said both children's injuries are believed to be minor.
