Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- One person is dead after their car crashed into a bus on Owens Avenue east of Sandhill Road.

It happened just before 6 p.m. Friday night.

Las Vegas police said a 21-year-old man from Las Vegas was traveling on Owens in a 2005 Nissan 350Z, when he lost control of the vehicle.

The vehicle began to spin and then struck the back of a stopped bus that was loading passengers.

The operator of the bus was not hurt, and some passengers on the bus received minor injuries.
