NEW YORK (Reuters) - At least three people were killed after a commuter bus and a school bus with no students on it collided in Baltimore early on Tuesday, according to local media reports.

Around 6:30 a.m. at an intersection in the southwest part of the city, the school bus crashed head-on into a Maryland Transit Administration bus, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith wrote on Twitter that drivers should expect closures and delays while significant injuries were being reported.

"We are in the process of gathering information on the bus crash," Smith tweeted. "We will advise once we have more."

There was no information on the cause of the crash or details about the fatalities.

WTHR, an NBC-affiliate news station, said initial reports said there were no students on the school bus.
