At about 8:30 p.m. yesterday night, Prairie Mountain RCMP responded to a crash in Waywayseecappo First Nation, where a SUV travelling northbound on Shingoose Road collided with a southbound school bus.

As a result of the crash, all three passengers of the SUV were transported to the Russell Hospital.

It was there that the man was pronounced dead.

The 40-year-old woman driver of the SUV and 41-year-old rear-seat passenger suffered minor injuries.

Four children were aboard the bus at the time, suffering minor injuries. The bus driver also suffered minor injuries.

The article says that "...all three passengers of the SUV were transported to Russell Hospital...", and yet only a female driver and two male passengers are mentioned. Who was the third passenger?
