One person is dead and several more injured from a crash involving a school bus in Michigan Tuesday morning, according to police.

Around 10:20 a.m., an SUV rear-ended a disabled bus from Ypsilanti Community Schools on the eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 at U.S. Route 23 near Pittsfield Township, Michigan State Police said in a press release.

The bus was being serviced by a tow truck for a flat tire, the school district said in a statement. There were no students on it at the time of the crash, the school district said.

The tow truck driver — identified as 42-year-old Ypsilanti resident Nader Chehadi — was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Chehadi was apparently at the rear of the bus when the accident occurred, ABC Detroit affiliate WXYZ reported.
