A 59-year-old woman from New Port Richey died Friday from injuries suffered during a crash with a Pasco County school bus on Wednesday.

The bus, which did not have any children aboard, was heading northbound on Old Tampa Bay Drive when the driver failed to yield and entered the path of the woman’s sedan, which was traveling eastbound on State Road 52, according to a news release from the Florida Highway Patrol.

The sedan struck the left side of the bus and became wedged underneath it, trapping the New Port Richey woman.

She was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, and she died at 5:55 p.m. Friday, the Highway Patrol said.

The bus driver, a 50-year-old woman from Land O’ Lakes, and her passenger, a 35-year-old woman from Wesley Chapel, both were uninjured in the crash.

The Highway Patrol did not release the names of those involved in the crash because of its interpretation of Marsy’s Law, an amendment to the state Constitution.
