RONAN, Mont. (AP) - The driver of a sport utility vehicle died after the SUV collided with a school bus on U.S. Highway 93 just north of Ronan.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says the children on the bus suffered some bumps and bruises in the crash Monday morning. After being checked out by medical personnel they were loaded onto another bus and taken to school.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Zach Miller says the SUV was northbound at about 8 a.m. when it drifted into the path of the oncoming bus. The bus driver was unable to avoid the collision.

Bell says the SUV was totaled while the bus had front-end damage and damage to both axles.

The victim’s name has not been released.
