Woman dies after crash with Cooper school bus

Cooper – A 54 year old Paris woman has died after a wreck with a Cooper School Bus last week. Barbara Kay Jones died approximately two hours after the crash Thursday after she was transported to Presbyterian Hospital of Commerce.

The accident happened near Klondike, when Jones crossed the center stripe of the road and struck the Cooper bus head-on. The bus was filled with children, but none were hurt. The SUV Jones was driving was crushed and the bus sustained major damage.

Investigators are at a loss as to why Jones crossed into the opposite lane.
