MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police in St. Paul say a Metro Transit bus was involved in a fatal crash Friday night.

It happened at the intersection of Dale Street and Charles Avenue at around 7:30 p.m. Pictures from WCCO and St. Paul Police show the side of the bus completely ripped off and another car totaled at the scene.

Police say a car involved in a minor accident, not far away, drove away from the scene. It was going eastbound on Charles when it jumped a median and, while airborne, slammed into a northbound bus.

A passenger inside the bus — a 48-year-old man — died in the crash. The 26-year-old driver of the car and a 19-year-old passenger of the bus are at Regions Hospital in critical condition.
