LAPLACE, Louisiana (AP) — Louisiana State Police say a 21-year-old Mississippi man was killed and three other Mississippi residents were seriously injured when a bus hit a fire truck and three other vehicles.

Trooper Melissa Matey says Jermaine Starr of Moss Point was killed when the bus rear-ended the Toyota Camry in which he was a rear-seat passenger. Another passenger was critically injured, and the driver and third passenger were seriously injured. All are also from Moss Point.

Matey says the bus also hit three St. John the Baptist Parish firefighters, killing one and leaving a second in critical condition.

She says the bus driver is a 37-year-old Honduran man who had entered the United States illegally. She says sheriff’s deputies will arrest Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez on charges including two counts of negligent homicide.
