HOBART | A 66-year-old Hobart man was charged with drunken driving after he was involved in a crash with a school bus last week, police said.

Jerry J. Peyton was charged in Hobart City Court with operating while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated endangering another person.

The accident was reported to police March 15 at the intersection of South Linda and Lillian streets.
