CAMPBELL COUNTY, Ky. — A charter bus carrying students from Covington Catholic High School collided with a car Saturday morning in northern Kentucky, killing the car's driver.

The crash happened around 7:20 a.m. on the AA Highway in Campbell County in the city of California.

According to WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Covington said the bus was bringing Covington Catholic students and their chaperones back from the March for Life rally in Washington D.C.

The driver of the car was the individual who died in the accident; the driver's name has not been released. Two people on the bus were taken to a local hospital for treatment, and others suffered minor injuries.

Campbell County Deputy Emergency Manager Greg Buckler said the tour bus was headed northbound when the car traveling southbound crossed the median and hit the bus head-on.

Since the collision, all lanes have been re-opened on the highway.
