A man is dead following a collision with a school bus Thursday evening.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., Prairie Mountain RCMP received a call regarding an accident between an SUV and a school bus in Waywayseecappo First Nation.

According to RCMP, the SUV was headed northbound on Shingoose Road when it collided with the southbound bus. Four children, plus the driver, were on the bus at the time of the collision; all suffered minor injuries.

A 44-year-old man, sitting in the passenger seat of the SUV, was rushed to Russell Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was not wearing a seatbelt. His name will not be released.

The 40-year-old female driver of the SUV and the passenger in the backseat, a 41-year-old man, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, as well. They were also taken to the hospital.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision.

The investigation continues.
