One woman dies, 13 others hurt in northern Wisconsin crash

VILAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A woman was killed and at least 13 others were injured when two cars collided in far northern Wisconsin -- and a tour bus then hit one of the autos.

It happened late Thursday morning on Highway 51 near Arbor Vitae.

State Patrol Sergeant Travis Wanless said one northbound car rear-ended another -- and one of the cars veered into the southbound lane, where the oncoming bus struck that vehicle.

The driver of that car, a 64-year-old Minocqua woman, was killed. The other car was driven by a 47-year-old Woodruff woman.

The tour bus was carrying a group from Beloit, ages 40 to 85. All were taken to a Woodruff hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The bus driver declined a hospital transport. No names were immediately released.

The crash remains under investigation.
