ASHLAND, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Wisconsin say a car rear-ended a school bus loaded with 45 students, but the children and the bus driver were not hurt.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says the crash happened about six miles south of Ashland on State Highway 13 at 3:50 p.m. Tuesday after school let out.

Ashland County Sheriff Michael Brennan says the bus was stopped on the road to let a student off and had its red flashers operating when a car struck it from behind.

The Daily Press reports the driver of the car was trapped when his vehicle slid under the bus. Emergency workers freed the man, and he was flown to a Duluth, Minnesota, hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

The State Patrol and the sheriff’s office are investigating.
