A Sanford man died after his car was pushed into the path of a school bus Wednesday afternoon in Berwick.

Berwick police say a 42-year-old Sanford woman was driving a Toyota Rav 4 at the intersection of Portland Street (Route 4) and Old Route 4 at 1:40 p.m. when she rear-ended a Ford Fusion that was making a turn. The collision pushed the Ford Fusion into the path of a school bus driven by a 75-year-old man from Kittery.

The driver of the Ford Fusion, who was 31, was pronounced dead at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover, New Hampshire.

There were no students on the bus.

Police have not released the names of the drivers involved and continue to investigate the crash.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Sgt. Jeffrey Pilkington or Detective Wilfred Vachon at 698-1136.
