KITTERY (WGME) -- The man who drove a van full of children that veered off the road and slammed into a tree has had his driver's license suspended again.

The Town of Kittery is looking into why a background check didn't reveal his previous convictions.

The Secretary of State's Office says 21-year-old John Guy's license was suspended again because of a reported medical condition.

Guy has a history of driving violations, including nine convictions.

Eleven children and two adults from a Kittery summer camp had to be hospitalized after the crash.

The Town of Kittery says it ran a background check on Guy, which uses several databases.

They are investigating why the check didn't result in an accurate assessment of Guy's history.
