YAZOO COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A 16-year-old high-school student died in a wreck Friday morning in Yazoo County. It happened on Old Benton Road just outside Yazoo City.

Several children were on board the bus, but they and the driver escaped with no serious injuries.

The driver of the car was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died just after 8:00, according to Yazoo County coroner Ricky Shivers.

It's not clear how the wreck happened, but it did close that road for part of the morning. It's now back open, and the scene is clear.
