No students were on the bus, but three passengers in the car were injured.

One woman was killed and three others were injured after a car collided with a school bus in Jackson, Mich.

Mlive.com reports that no students were on the bus at the time of the crash, which happened just before noon Monday.

The woman who was driving the car died at the scene, police say.

Witnesses pulled a 6-month-old and 3-year-old from the car, which was wedged under the bus. The children were taken to a local hospital; a passenger in the front seat were taken to another hospital. 

The bus crashed into an electrical pole and severed it. That resulted in more than 1,300 customers in the area losing power,  

The bus was a Jackson Public Schools special education bus that had just finished its noon run, Superintendent Jeff Beal said in a message.

Both the driver and a monitor on the bus were shaken, but uninjured, he said.  

Witnesses said speed was to blame in the crash.
