DENVER, Colorado -- Police say the driver of a school bus that crashed at Denver International Airport circled back to the airport and crashed into a concrete pillar after she picked up members of a high school football team.

Police spokesman John White says police do not know why she circled back to the airport Sunday afternoon, September 11, 2016. The driver, whose name and age have not been released, died at the scene.

Authorities say that 17 to 20 passengers were taken to nearby hospitals. Officials at Denver Health tell the KUSA TV station that they have five patients: two are in critical condition, two are in serious condition and one in in fair condition. The Denver Post reports that five patients in fair condition were taken to Children's Hospital Colorado.

KUSA reports that the bus is from Legacy High School, which is in Broomfield and is part of Adams 12 Five Star Schools. The Post reports that the football team from Legacy played Chino High School on Friday night in California.

An official with DIA tweets that all passenger pickups were taking place on Terminal West because of the crash at the east terminal.

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