One dead, three injured in van, bus crash

A vehicle and a school bus were involved in an accident in Kenosha County Friday morning, authorities said.

Separate school bus crashes on opposite sides of the state have killed two drivers and sent students to the hospital.

The crash happened when the bus carrying 19 children stopped to pick up a student along its route around 7 a.m.

After preliminary investigations, a Lakeshore bus was determined to be carrying 18 students traveling northbound on STH 112 and began slowing to make a left-hand turn when it was struck from behind by a auto driven by a 16-year-old Ashland High School student. "The actual bumper of the back of the bus, it appears like it went nearly to the back of the passenger seat or the driver's seat".

Along with Salem Lakes Fire and Rescue, four other departments responded to the scene, where students received transportation to the fire station in Trevor. His name is being withheld until family is notified.
