A hotel shuttle and a bus carrying FedEx employees collided head-on at Newark Liberty International Airport early Wednesday, killing a driver and injuring three passengers.

Steve Coleman, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said a shuttle operated by the airport's Marriott hotel and a First Transit bus contracted by FedEx crashed head-on around 1:30 a.m.

The hotel shuttle bus driver was pronounced dead at University Hospital in Newark.

Port Authority spokesman John Kelly said three passengers aboard that vehicle were injured, including a woman in serious but stable condition. The First Transit bus driver was not injured.

Port Authority police are investigating the crash.
