1 Killed In School Bus Crash

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 19-year-old man was killed when his vehicle crashed into a Sasakwa school bus.

Shane Denton of Sasakwa died in the crash on Oklahoma 56 south of Wewoka about 7:30 Thursday morning.

The highway patrol reports there were 22 students ranging in age from 5 to 15 on the bus. They were not injured.

Investigators say Denton was southbound when he crashed into the bus after swerving to avoid a car that was stopped behind the bus in the southbound lanes as students were unloading. Troopers say Denton hit the car then struck the bus broadside and was pronounced dead at the scene.
