Miller did not have information on the number of people in the vehicle that collided with the bus.

He said the crash happened at about 1 pm along Highway 67 north of Corning.

“Apparently (the bus) was struck by another vehicle that caused the bus to veer off the road,” Miller said.

Corning is near Arkansas’ border with Missouri and about 170 miles (273 kilometers) northeast of Little Rock.
