DENHAM SPRINGS - Sheriff's deputies accused the Livingston man who investigators said hit a bus full of children early Tuesday morning with driving under the influence.

The sheriff's office charged 32-year-old Brandon Vince with DWI first offense, reckless operation, 17 counts of negligent injuring, driving while his license was restricted, and numerous drug charges.

Deputies said around 8 a.m. Tuesday Vince was driving south of Denham Springs when he crossed the center line and hit a bus with 30 students on board. More than a dozen students were taken to the hospital with minor injuries as a precaution, and deputies said Vince had major injuries.

The sheriff's office said Vince was in the process of being booked into the Livingston Parish jail Wednesday afternoon.
