A Toyota Prius lost traction and spun out, broad-siding a Metro Transit bus traveling in the right lane.

The right-front passenger in the Prius suffered fatal injuries, with the driver and rear passenger taken to North Memorial Hospital.

The bus had no passengers, with the driver the sole occupant.

It's one of hundreds crashes and spinouts being reported across the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota since the snow started on Friday.

Injury incidents reported on Sunday include a Ford Focus driver who lost control and struck the median on I-35 in Rice County, and a Chevrolet Tahoe crashing into a left-turning semi-trailer on northbound Hwy. 52 near Rochester.

In the past three days, the State Patrol says there have been 558 crashes across the state – 64 of them resulting in injuries, two in serious injuries and one death – as of 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

The I-94 fatality will double the death toll.

There have also been 1,058 vehicle spinouts/off-road incidents, as well as 20 jackknifed semis.
