One person is dead after becoming trapped under a school bus.

Officials say a Pasco County school bus was traveling northbound on Old Tampa Bay Drive. No children were on the bus. At the intersection with SR-52, the bus failed to yield and entered the path of a second vehicle traveling eastbound on SR-52.

The second vehicle hit the left side of the bus and became wedged underneath with the driver inside. The driver was later taken to the hospital. On November 5 the driver died from their injuries.
