Six people were killed and three injured in an accident involving an express bus and a truck in upstate New York on Saturday morning, officials said.

New York State Police responded to a collision between the bus and the Freightliner truck around 6 am ET on State Highway 37 in Louisville, a city near the US-Canada border, according to an agency press release.

The accident left one person in critical condition and seriously injured two people on the express bus, state police said. The victims were transported to several hospitals, according to the statement.

It is not clear how many people were on board the vehicles or where they were going when the deadly accident happened.

“The facts about the cause of this accident are unknown at this time,” spokesman Randolph P. Ryerson of Penske, the rental company for the truck involved, told CNN.

“We do not yet have specific information about the rental vehicle involved or information about who was driving the rental vehicle at the time of the incident,” added Ryerson.

National Transport Safety Council announced is launching a six-member team to conduct a safety investigation into the fatal collision.

Mayor Mike Zagrobelny of Waddington, a town close to the crash site, thanked first responders across the county who helped in a Facebook post Saturday.
