A school bus has crashed at Denver International Airport, killing the driver and leaving up to 20 passengers injured.

Police spokesman John White said the female bus driver died after the bus veered off a road and crashed into a concrete wall.

Authorities said 17 to 20 passengers were taken to nearby hospitals. Officials at Denver Health said they have five patients: two are in critical condition, two are in serious condition and one is in fair condition.

The bus is reported to be from Legacy High School, which is in Broomfield, Colorado, and is part of Adams 12 Five Star Schools.

The Denver Post reported that the football team from Legacy had played Chino High School on Friday night in California.

The Adams 12 Five Star Schools is a public district that serves suburbs north of Denver, including Broomfield, Federal Heights, Northglenn, Thornton and Westminster.
