The Associated Press

The driver of a school bus involved in a crash with three semitrailers in dense fog at an intersection near Kindred a week ago has died.

Fargo's Boulger Funeral Home confirmed to The Associated Press that Cathy Jostad died early Friday and said funeral arrangements were pending.

Jostad had both of her legs amputated after the crash Sept. 25.

None of the 32 students aboard the bus was seriously injured in the crash, but Jostad was pinned in the wreckage and it took rescue crews more than half an hour to free her and take her to a Fargo hospital.

State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler issued a statement saying she was "deeply saddened" by Jostad's death.
