MONROE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) – An 18-year-old Tomah woman is accused of rear-ending a school bus in a crash that injured multiple students.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says it was notified of the crash at 7:09 a.m. Wednesday. It happened on Highway 21, near County Highway M, in the township of Greenfield in Monroe County.

The school bus was picking up children and had its stop sign out and red lights on when 18-year-old Corrin Jorgensen of rural Tomah hit the back of the bus with her car, which ended up underneath the bus. After deputies helped her out of her car, Jorgensen was taken to a hospital in Tomah with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the school bus and 14 students on board were taken to the same hospital for minor injuries. Nineteen other students were also taken to the hospital to be checked out for safety reasons.

The crash is under investigation.
