DADE CITY, FL (WFLA) -

A school bus and two cars were involved in an accident, leaving one dead, in Dade City Wednesday afternoon.

The three-vehicle accident occurred near the intersection of US 301 and Morningside Drive, Dade City Police say. Police say a Smart Car was sitting at a red light in the southbound lanes of US 301 when it was hit by a Pasco County school bus.

The impact pushed the vehicle into the intersection, where it struck a Chevrolet Malibu driven by 65-year-old Harian McDonald of Dade City.

McDonald was killed at the scene.

There were two children in her car, a 14-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy. They were taken to Florida Hospital with injuries that appear minor.

The driver of the Smart car, Patrician Austin, was flown to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.

The bus driver, 57-year-old Bonita Mayle, was not injured. There was male aid on the bus, but no children.

The accident remains under investigation.
