The driver of a van involved in a crash with a school bus that killed four students in rural Minnesota has been arrested. The Lyon County sheriff's office says 23-year-old Alianiss N. Morales is being held on suspicion of criminal vehicular operation. Prosecutors are considering formal charges.

Two brothers, the daughter of a teacher and the son of a former teacher were killed in Tuesday's crash about two hours southwest of Minneapolis. At least 14 other people were hurt; many of them remain hospitalized.

Authorities say the van struck the bus and the bus then rolled over onto a pickup truck.
