Ontario Provincial Police say a school bus driver is dead after the bus they were driving, which was empty at the time, left a roadway, entered and ditch and collided with trees.

OPP say the crash occurred at roughly 4 p.m. Monday on Norfolk County Road 23, South Walsingham, northwest of Long Point, Ont.

The driver, 49-year-old Kari-Anne Michelle Wills of Norfolk County, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but was later pronounced dead.

The OPP’s west region traffic incident team is still investigating, Acting Sgt. Ed Sanchuk said.

“We are attempting to put the pieces of the puzzle back together to determine exactly what transpired here,” Sanchuk said.
