Provincial police in Huron County are investigating a fatal two-vehicle crash involving a school bus just south of Ethel, Ont.
They say the incident occurred at around 7:40 a.m. near McNaught Line (Huron County Road #19) south of Cranbrook Road.
Police say an early investigation shows the school-bus was headed north on McNaught Line when it collided head-on with a mini-van that was coming from the opposite direction.
The driver of the mini-van was pronounced dead at the scene. In an update late Tuesday afternoon, OPP identified the deceased as Daniel Karpyshyn, 36, of Vanastra, Ont.
The bus was empty, aside from the driver who was transported to local hospital with minor injuries.
Police say McNaught Line (Huron County Road #19) will be closed between St. Michael’s Road and Cranbrook Road for a few hours as they investigate the collision.
Ethel is about an hour’s drive northwest from Kitchener and about 20 minutes west of Listowel.
