TYLER, Texas (AP) - Police say two men have died after their pickup truck collided in East Texas with a charter bus carrying students returning from Florida.
Tyler police say five occupants of the bus - the driver, two other adults and two students - were taken to a hospital after sustaining minor injuries in the head-on crash just after 4 a.m. Sunday.
Police say witness accounts indicate the eastbound truck veered into the westbound lane, striking the bus, which went off the roadway.

Police say the pickup's driver was 22-year-old Jeffrey Dalton Aynesworth of Rusk. The passenger was 24-year-old Payton Joseph Raymond of Flint.
