An 11-year-old girl died, and at least 10 other people were injured in the crash of a school bus and a tractor trailer on a rural Mississippi highway. The girl's death was confirmed by the Boliver County coroner.

The accident happened around 7:20 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Mississippi Highway 450 and U.S. Highway 61 in southern Bolivar County.

The Shaw School District said the bus was one of theirs, carrying students ranging from kindergarten through high school.

The Bolivar Commercial newspaper has pictures of both vehicles that showed the vehicles flipped over and landed on their sides.
