READSTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- A 51-year-old man was killed after he crashed his SUV into the rear of a stopped school bus in Vernon County.

None of the nine students aged 4 to 15 aboard the Kickapoo School District bus were injured Tuesday morning. The Crawford County man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, has not been identified.

Vernon County Sheriff Gene Cary says the bus was stopped along a highway about 7:10 a.m. to pick up students, and that its warning lights were flashing.
