Authorities say a driver crashed into a school bus and was killed Wednesday morning, while two students and the bus driver suffered minor injuries.

The accident happened Wednesday morning on Route 116 in Bethlehem. The road was closed in both directions at Wing Road but has since reopened.

Authorities say the driver crossed lanes, crashed into the oncoming bus, and died. The bus was taking students from Lin-Wood High School in Lincoln to White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield.

An SUV also was involved in the accident. Authorities say the driver wasn’t hurt.

Calls to Bethlehem and state police weren’t immediately returned Wednesday.
