TOWN OF KEWASKUM, Wis. (AP) -- Washington County authorities say six people were injured in a crash involving an ambulance, a school bus and another vehicle in the Town of Kewaskum in southeastern Wisconsin.

It happened shortly before 11 a.m. Friday as the bus was taking middle-schoolers to Sunburst Ski Area.
