Authorities on scene of a three-vehicle crash involving a Rapid bus in Wyoming Friday, Oct. 18, 2019.

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Investigators are trying to determine what led to a head-on crash that sent a woman to the hospital.

The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. Friday at the intersection Byron Center Avenue and Fox Run Road SW, just north of 44th Street.

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety says a car driven by a 28-year-old woman from Wyoming was heading north on Byron Center Avenue when it crossed the center line, hitting a southbound SUV.

The impact of the crash sent the car into the path of a southbound Rapid bus.

First responders freed the driver of the car from the wreckage. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was listed in serious condition Friday afternoon, according to police.

The 21-year-old Wyoming woman driving the SUV and the Rapid bus driver were not seriously injured, and police say bus passengers reported only very minor injuries.

The crash closed the roadway for hours, but it has since reopened.
