Roads were glazed over with a thin sheet of ice this morning, which made for slick and in places treacherous travel.
A school bus from the Knox Community School Corporation was involved in a minor crash this morning. Bus #16 was on U.S. 35 on the way to pick up students when a vehicle traveling westbound on 200 North slid through the intersection and barely clipped the school bus. The bus did not have students on it at the time. A rear tire was flattened and a scratch was made during the collision. Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the bus was then taken back to the bus garage and another bus was dispatched to take it’s place so repairs could be made. The driver was not injured.
A little farther north on 35 a red GMC Sierra pickup truck was on its driver’s side in a ditch on the east side of the roadway.
Emergency responders are on the scene of numerous crashes across the listening area this morning. We’ll bring you information as it becomes available. Meanwhile, please allow plenty of extra time to get to work, school, appointments or wherever this morning. Remember, ice and snow, take it slow, and allow plenty of extra following distance in case you need to stop suddenly. Crews from the Starke County Highway Department are out spreading sand on roads as we speak, but roads are still very slick in spots.
