CLEVELAND, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Cleveland city bus driver died when he lost control of his vehicle and collided with two cars, officials said. Three others were injured

The incident happened Sunday as the bus driver, Christopher Battle, 53, was driving near a busy intersection, The (Cleveland) Plains Dealer reported.
