Teen driver killed in crash with school bus


A 16-year-old girl was killed after a crash with a school bus in southeast Minnesota Wednesday afternoon, the Albert Lea Tribune reports.

The Minnesota State Patrol says Tess Landherr of Rose Creek was traveling northbound on Hwy 56 in Adams when the car she was driving hit an icy patch and spun out, colliding with the school bus that was heading in the opposite direction.

Landherr did not survive the impact and her passenger, 15-year-old Anna Bruggeman of Rose Creek, was seriously injured.

The Rochester Post Bulletin reports 50 children from Southland Elementary were aboard the bus. Only one student, 8-year-old Rachel Heller, suffered minor injuries. The bus driver was uninjured.
