ST. LOUIS — Editor's note: Police originally reported that the woman died. They have since provided an update that the woman is in critical condition.

A woman is in critical condition after a car crash Sunday morning involving her car and two Metro Transit buses.

The crash happened shortly before 6 a.m. at the intersection of N. Broadway and E. Taylor Avenue, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said. A MetroBus on its 95 Kingshighway route was driving eastbound through a green light on E. Taylor as a Ford Focus sped northbound on N. Broadway.

The car struck the right front wheel of the bus, causing the bus to swerve into the westbound lanes and sideswipe another MetroBus.

The driver of the car was taken to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

Both buses were at the ends of their routes and had no passengers, said Metro Transit Communications Manager Jerry Vallely. The driver of the bus that the woman crashed into was taken to a hospital for observation. The driver of the other bus was not injured.

The police department's Accident Reconstruction Unit investigated the crash.

This is a developing story. It will be updated as more information becomes available.
