One person died Friday morning after a van rear-ended a school bus in the Town of Salem near Kenosha, police say.

Ashland County Sheriff Michael Brennan told the News Tribune that "excessive speed" appeared to be a contributing factor in the accident.

Around 7:45 a.m. Friday, May 19, the Ashland County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a auto that had rear-ended a school bus on State Highway 112 approximately two miles south of Ashland. About 20 students were on the bus.

This crash remains under investigation by the Ashland County Sheriff's Office.
