One woman is dead after a crash involving a school bus Tuesday evening in Justin, officials say.

The Northwest ISD school bus was empty and on its way back to the district's transportation hub following its after-school route, according to a district statement.

The crash happened along Farm-to-Market Road 156 just south of State Highway 114 near Northwest High School, according to MedStar.

A man in the private vehicle was taken to an area hospital in stable condition, Fort Worth police said. Police say a female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. Family members tell NBC 5 the woman was the man's wife.

The driver of the school bus was uninjured, police said.

"We are heartbroken to learn about the loss of life in the wreck this afternoon," the district said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved and their families. We are thankful for the actions of the first responders who arrived at the scene within minutes."

Northwest ISD and its transportation provider Reliant Transportation are cooperating with the investigation, the statement added.

The cause of the crash was not immediately available.
