ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A person died after crashing into a Metro Transit Bus on Lucas and Hunt Road Friday afternoon, police said.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the accident happened just north of Interstate 70. The Metro bus was stopped to load passengers when a 2007 Chevrolet Impala that was going too fast rear-ended the bus. The driver of the Impala, 49-year-old Lavell Flewellen, of Florissant, died at a hospital.

Several passengers on the bus, including a 6-year-old girl, and the driver were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
