CLINTON, Md. (WMAR) — A woman was killed and five other people were hurt in a crash involving a school bus, tractor-trailer, and five other vehicles on Wednesday morning.

It happened at the intersection of Branch Avenue and Surratts Road in Clinton.

Prince George's County Police have identified the deceased as 32-year-old Shamika Brown.

The school bus driver and two passengers aboard suffered what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Two additional drivers were also hurt but are expected to survive.
