TOMAHAWK - It seems like everyone will be ok after a school bus crash Tuesday north of Tomahawk sent kids and a driver to the hospital.

64-year-old Ronald Evans of Tomahawk was the driver of that truck.

He had to be medflighted to Ministry St. Joseph's in Marshfield. Hospital officials tell us he's in fair condition as of Wednesday night.

A 10-year-old child had to be treated at Ministry Sacred Heart, but they were released today.

All the other students were checked out and are ok.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is handling the investigation.

"Sometimes students get caught up in getting to go to one class to the other to the other. If we can break up that day for those students and give them some movement, brain breaks and activities… Studies have shown that they will be effective through the day," said Gretzinger.
