Police responded to the corner of Jefferson Avenue and West Main Street in Rochester just before 3 p.m. Tuesday for an accident involving a RTS bus and a car. Crews remained on the scene through the day and into the evening doing accident reconstruction.
Officers said the bus was traveling westbound down West Main Street and the car was traveling eastbound when another car going westbound took a left hand turn onto Jefferson Ave. Police said that caused the victim's vehicle to collide with the bus.
The male driver of the car died at the scene. Police have not yet identified the victim.
They say they are looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses.
"At this point, we don't know the license plate of the vehicle that turned in front of our victim vehicle, so we're asking people in the community if they have any knowledge about this accident to please come forward and please let us know with any information," said Investigator Jackie Shuman with the Rochester Police Department.
Rural Metro transported the bus driver to the hospital, but there is no word on the extent of his injuries.
Police said there were no passengers on the bus at the time of the accident.
