A bus driver who routinely sat in his car and listened to the news on the radio was killed while doing so on Monday. 

Marlin Miller, 50, of Ponsford, Minnesota, was in his vehicle outside his workplace in Frazee when a car crashed into him head-on, according to KFGO. He was taken to a hospital but did not survive his injuries. 

The report says a 39-year-old Perham man was arrested and charges are expected. 

Anderson Bus and Coach, Miller's employer, posted to Facebook saying he was "killed in front of our garage" while listening to the radio at 5:45 a.m.

The post says a car with no headlights on "came out of now where and slammed" into his vehicle. 

The Facebook post has more than 200 comments from people who knew and respected Miller from his years busing them and their children around the area. 

Miller was a 30-year employee of Anderson Bus and Coach.
