A 24-year-old Athens woman, who was a passenger of the automobile, was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the car, a 27-year-old Marathon man was seriously hurt. Officials said he remains hospitalized in critical condition.

The other injured individuals included 13 occupants of the school bus eight who were transported by ambulance to Green Bay area hospitals. At least five others were taken to medical facilities by their parents after initial evaluation at the scene.

The crash occurred in the westbound lane of Highway 29 shortly before 9 p.m. at Highway 156 and Saint Augustine Road at the Brown-Shawano county line.

Brown County officials said the car, which was traveling west on Highway 29, hit the back of the northbound bus while it was crossing the highway. Impact was made in the passenger side rear corner of the bus.
