MANSFIELD - A young man was killed when his sport utility vehicle collided head on with a Windham transit bus late Thursday, according to WFSB.

The crash occurred at about 8:45 p.m. on Route 195, reports said.

A young man who was driving a sport utility vehicle that collided with a Windham Regional Transit District died from his injuries, WFSB said.

Only the bus driver was on the bus when the crash occurred, authorities said. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

The name of the man who died has not been released. Reports indicate that Life Star was called, but then cancelled.

The section of Route 195 in Mansfield from Bassetts Bridge Road and Mansfield Hollow was closed throughout much of the night as emergency responders dealt with the crash.

The road is now re-opened, according to dispatchers at State Police Troop C in Tolland.
