An Alabama school bus driver is dead following the crash of a bus that had just dropped off students at school.

The Alabama Education Association says on Twitter that the driver was killed, but authorities haven’t released the person’s name.

School spokeswoman Rena Phillips says the driver had just taken students to school when the accident happened.

Authorities haven’t said what might have caused the crash.
