Another witness said she saw the vehicle speeding eastbound on Charles Avenue, hit the median and fly into the air - smashing into and completely through the bus.

One person is dead and two are badly injured after a auto struck a Metro Transit bus in St. Paul Friday night, almost cutting it in half.

The 48-year old bus rider who was killed was ejected from the bus after being hit by the auto, police said. Another passenger, a 19-year-old man, was critically injured and taken by ambulance to Regions Hospital. It is unclear how many people are on the bus, but St. Paul Police Public Information Officer Steve Linders estimated there were between six to eight passengers.

The driver of the vehicle is a 26-year-old man, and he is in critical condition.
