A head-on crash east of Big Lake claimed the life of one person and injured nine others on Thursday afternoon. 

According to the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office, an SUV traveling south on County Road 15 collided head-on with a northbound bus near County Road 83. The bus was carrying eight adult passengers, one of whom was killed in the crash. 

The victim has been identified as Marilyn R. Balogi, 47, of Zimmerman. 

Seven other passengers and the bus driver were all transported to local hospitals, as was the driver of the SUV. The severity of their injuries are unknown. 

The crash happened around 3:10 p.m. and road conditions were poor at the time because of snow and rain that had been falling throughout the day. 

The sheriff's office plans to release more information about the crash on Friday.
