Minnesota State Patrol says there are no injuries reported on the school bus. FOX 9 has learned the bus is owned by Playworks, a childcare program ran by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. They tell FOX 9 there were 20 kids on board at the time of the crash. Like state patrol, they confirm no one on the bus was injured but added that they were "saddened to learn" of the passing of the other driver involved.

Throughout the day, nearly 600 crashes were reported statewide in Minnesota.
