Injuries have been reported, but the extent of those injuries are unknown, Davis said.

Area media is reporting a motorist in a second vehicle, not the school bus, was killed.

Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling in the area and stay alert for stopped or slow moving traffic.

“This is an active crash scene and additional information will be released as details are confirmed,” Davis said.
