HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - A crash involving a charter bus Saturday night in Greene County left one teen dead and sent another to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Travis Luck identified the person killed in the collision as 17-year-old Hayden Humpherys, of Hattiesburg.

MHP troopers responded at 8:55 p.m. Saturday to a two-vehicle accident at the U.S. Highway 98-Mississipppi 57 intersection in Greene County.

Luck said the preliminary investigation revealed that a charter bus, traveling west on U.S. 98, collided into the passenger side of a Toyota traveling north from Mississippi 57.
