Two people have been killed and 17 others are injured after two buses collided in New Jersey.
Authorities say one New Jersey Transit bus carrying only the driver slammed into another at about 6am on Friday in Newark. The driver of the bus with no passengers died.
A spokeswoman for the Essex County prosecutor's office says the second victim is a woman but no other information was immediately available.
Investigators are trying to determine if the driver who died went through a red light.
The junction where the crash occurred was the first in the state to have a surveillance camera to catch drivers running red lights. The surveillance programme was discontinued in 2014.
