A deadly collision between a vehicle and an RTS bus left one man dead on Tuesday afternoon, according to ABC 13 WHAM.

Details of the Deadly Collision

Preliminary reports from police say that a silver Dodge sedan was traveling along West Main Street in Rochester when an oncoming vehicle made a sudden left-turn, cutting off the sedan. The driver of the Dodge swerved to avoid the vehicle and collided with a city bus, killing the driver of the sedan. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not released the name of the victim, but family members who recognized the vehicle told reporters the car belonged to Terrence Frye.
