TOMAHAWK, WI (WTAQ) - A school bus passenger and a pick-up truck driver were hospitalized after their vehicles collided north of Tomahawk.

The State Patrol said the 64-year-old truck driver was pulling out of a driveway onto a town road, when it collided with the approaching bus. It happened just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Various media reports said the truck driver was flown to a Marshfield hospital, and his condition was not known.

Reports said there were 13 to 15 students on the school bus. One child mentioned a sore neck, so all the youngsters were checked over at a hospital for observation before being released to their parents – and one of those youngsters stayed at a Tomahawk hospital in fair condition.

The crash remains under investigation.
