SARDIS, Miss. (AP) — A driver has died after rear-ending a school bus on a north Mississippi highway.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol tells WREG-TV that the wreck happened Wednesday morning on Mississippi 315 in Panola County.

The bus driver and 15 children on the South Panola school district bus were not hurt.

Aleisha Mackey, a parent who had just picked up her children when the accident happened, says people unsuccessfully tried to get a response from the driver. A helicopter took the driver to a hospital, where she later died.

The driver hasn't been identified pending family notification.
