One person was killed and another is in critical condition after a crash involving a school bus in Mower County.

The crash happened on Highway 56 at County Road 5 near Adams Wednesday afternoon. The State Patrol says a northbound car lost control and collided head-on with the southbound bus.

The driver of the car was killed and the passenger is in critical condition, authorities say.

According to the Southland Schools Superintendent's Office, "injuries to the bus driver or kids are minor." Officials of Southland Public Schools did not know how many students were on the bus or the extent of their injuries.

Adams is about two hours south of the Twin Cities.
