Woman driver killed when her SUV collides with bus in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman driver who was killed in a crash involving her SUV and a Sun Tran bus in Tucson.

Tucson police say 50-year-old Sandra Galins was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead after Tuesday afternoon's accident.

Police say Galins tried to pass another vehicle but made contact with its driver's side rear bumper.

That caused Galins' SUV to swerve into the other lane collide head-on with the city bus.

Police say Galins wasn't wearing a seat belt.

They say four people on the bus suffered minor injuries, but none were taken to a hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle wasn't hurt.
