A 19-year-old man was killed late Friday when he drove his car down the wrong side of a road near the Queen Mary and collided head-on with a city bus.

Samuth Pen was pronounced dead shortly after the crash at 11:45 p.m., authorities said. Pen's two 18-year-old passengers survived. One suffered minor injuries; the other was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries and was listed in stable condition Saturday morning. Seven passengers on a Long Beach Transport bus were also taken to a hospital with minor to moderate injuries. Authorities have not determined why Pen was driving down the wrong side of Queensway Drive, according to Jackie Bezart, a Long Beach police spokeswoman.
