MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A woman whose crossover SUV collided with a school bus in northwestern North Dakota earlier this week has died from her injuries, authorities said Saturday.
The Highway Patrol says 79-year-old Carmie Nelson, of Kenmare, died Friday at a Minot hospital. She was driving a Ford Edge Tuesday afternoon that struck the Berthold Public Schools bus on a highway in Ward County near Carpio. The bus failed to yield to oncoming traffic.
A passenger in the Ford, 90-year-old Helen Nelson, of Kenmare, suffered serious injuries. Her condition has not been released.
The 79-year-old driver of the school bus and seven juvenile students riding the bus were not injured, the patrol said.
The crash remains under investigation.
