One driver has been killed and three students injured when a car drifted into oncoming traffic and struck a school bus in East Texas.

Trooper Jean Dark says the Wills Point Independent School District bus came to rest atop a portion of a Toyota Camry following the collision about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in Van Zandt County, about 45 miles east of Dallas.

She says the bus was traveling south when the northbound Camry crossed into its lane. Both drivers attempted to avoid the accident but ended up colliding in the northbound lane. A third vehicle also was involved in the wreck.

Dark says a man driving the Camry died at the scene. The bus driver and three students on the bus were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
