A Yaphank man appeared in court Friday after allegedly driving drunk and crashing into a school bus full of children.
Police say 56-year-old Warren Lukas was driving down South Country Road in Brookhaven Thursday afternoon when his pickup truck sideswiped a school bus waiting to turn.
Investigators say Lukas fled the scene of the accident, but was arrested shortly after.
None of the 55 children who were aboard the school bus at the time of the accident were hurt.
