DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas Area Rapid Transit bus driver has died after the vehicle struck a concrete bridge pillar.

DART spokesman Morgan Lyons says the wreck happened late Friday night. Lyons says the driver was alone on the bus and heading back to the vehicle barn at the end of the shift.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the bus to leave the road and strike the bridge support along a ramp.

Lyons says the driver died at the scene. The victim’s name was not immediately released.
