A 57-year-old New Prague woman is dead after a three-vehicle crash involving a school bus.

According to the Le Center Leader, the crash happened around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when a Tri-City United school bus stopped to pick up students south of Montgomery. The paper says a car heading the opposite direction stopped for the students when a pickup truck rear ended it at the intersection of Highway 13 and 380 Street.

The truck pushed the car into the side of the bus, the Mankato Free Press reports. According to the paper, the woman in the car died. The Le Center Leader says the man who drove the truck and his son had non-life threatening injuries.

Lt. Casey Meagher with the State Patrol told KEYC they're still investigating what caused the crash. The bus driver and students were not hurt, the station says.
