GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — A head-on crash involving a casino bus and two other vehicles left one driver dead and several injured.

The Sunday-morning crash happened when a woman driving a Ford Explorer on Highway 6 in Clear Creek Canyon crossed over the center line and hit the bus head-on. Forty casino employees and one driver were on the Horizon Coach Lines bus.
