LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a bus driver has died after her bus and a flatbed truck collided in downtown Los Angeles and the truck plowed into a convenience store.

Dave Sotero of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority confirms the driver's death. The 35-year-old had been taken to a hospital with critical injuries after the predawn Wednesday accident.

Sotero says the bus was out of service at the time and nobody else was aboard.

The 30-year-old truck driver was seriously injured and a store employee received minor injuries.

The crash on South Broadway crushed the front of the bus, mangled the cab of the truck, left a gaping hole in the building and unleashed a geyser from a sheared fire hydrant.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
