Motor vehicle accidents: Bus crash in Colorado kills 1

One person is dead following a vehicle crash involving a school bus in Castle Rock, according to local authorities. The accident happened in the early morning on Dec. 7 and claimed the life of one woman. As with many motor vehicle accidents, Colorado police are still working to determine what happened to cause this crash, and their investigation is still underway at this point. 

According to the limited information available in the accident report, it appears a small SUV collided with the bus around the intersection of Perry Street and Fifth Street. Five passengers, aged 14 to 17, were on board the bus along with the driver at the time of the accident, but no one on board was hurt. The bus was on its way to a local school campus when the accident happened. 

The driver of the SUV needed to be freed from the wreckage by emergency responders, and was rushed to a local hospital with serious injuries. The driver, a woman who has not been publicly identified by police at this time, was pronounced dead later that day, according to a local press release. The woman's identity is being protected pending notification of next-of-kin. 

Motor vehicle accidents that cause fatalities must be carefully reviewed by Colorado authorities including police, accident specialists and the fire department as necessary. The intent is to determine fault in the crash, which may be attributed to the bus driver or the deceased woman. If the bus driver is found to be responsible, that individual could face criminal charges as well as a civil wrongful death suit filed by the family of the deceased woman.
