Police say 33-year-old Jason Trask was on Bennetts Valley Highway when his car went to the path of the school bus in the opposite lane. The bus driver, 37-year-old Chrystal Miller of Curwensville, tried to avoid the crash, but the vehicles collided in the middle of the road.
Trask was pronounced dead at the scene. Miller was taken to Penn Highlands DuBois for treatment of unspecified injuries. 12 pre-schoolers were on the bus, but only a few suffered minor injuries.
Police are waiting for toxicology reports before concluding their investigation.
