A woman died this morning when the car she was driving collided with a Greyhound bus near Hosmer.

Around 4 a.m. the bus, travelling on Highway 3 from Calgary to Creston, collided with the car, killing the woman driver.

The bus driver is also in hospital.

B.C. RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Annie Linteau, confirmed that one woman had died and said two others were seriously injured.

Maureen Richmond, director of media relations for Greyhound, said the company would conduct a full investigation into the incident. “It’s too early to comment on the events leading up to the incident, but collision analysts are on their way to the scene,” she said.

The identity of the woman who died has not yet been released while police notify the family.

At 10 a.m. the road was still not fully open.

The start of the Relay For Life event in Fernie has been delayed waiting for participants stuck on Highway 3 to arrive.
