CUMBERLAND, Wis. (AP) -- Two people are dead and 16 others were injured after a car and a high school volleyball team's bus collided in western Wisconsin.

WDIO-TV reports the crash happened north of Cumberland at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The Wisconsin State Patrol says initial reports indicate a car didn't stop for the northbound bus of the Spooner High School volleyball team.

Two in the car were declared dead at the scene while a third occupant was airlifted to a hospital with critical injuries.
