The Duluth News Tribune reports the buses were traveling in opposite directions when they crashed, and that the eastbound bus is believed to have crossed the center lane after first colliding with a stop sign and signal lights at the intersection with 5th Avenue West.

"I looked up, and here comes a bus flooring it, right into us," Kathy Burgess, a passenger on the westbound bus, told the newspaper. "If it would have impacted a couple inches over, my window would have been hit."
