NEW LONDON, Wis. - Two teens are dead after their car collided with a school bus, carrying students on the way home from a ski trip.

Wisconsin troopers responded to the accident in Waupaca County about 10:00pm Friday night where the driver of the car failed to negotiate a curve in the road, and veered into the oncoming school bus with 39 students, two adult chaperones and a driver on-board. 

Three children on the bus and the bus driver were treated for minor injuries. 

State troopers say slippery conditions may be to blame.

The deceased are identified as 17 year olds Yalanda Maggio from Weyauwega and Levi Johnson from New London.
