School Bus, Minivan Crash in Westborough, Massachusetts; 1 Dead

Two people had to be extricated from a minivan that crashed into a school bus and lodged under it Wednesday in Westborough, Massachusetts.

According to police, two grandparents and a young girl were in the minivan. 

Desiree M. White, 80, of Plymouth, who police say was driving, did not survive her injuries. 79-year-old Ronald White and their 11-year-old granddaughter were passengers. 

The child only suffered bumps and bruises, and there were no students on the bus at the time.

West Main Street was blocked off to traffic as crews used the Jaws of Life to pull the patients out of the vehicle.

"One was extricated in about 10 minutes, but one was a very technical extrication. We were under the school bus and it took us over 90 minutes to free from the vehicle with the use of hydraulic tools," said Westborough Fire Chief Patrick Purcell.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
