The car crossed the center lane, struck the center lane light pole, and hit the front of a school bus. The car flipped over before coming to a stop.

The 40-year-old Milwaukee man driving the car died at the scene, and the 68-year-old male bus driver was injured. The bus driver was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
