Slick Roads a Factor in SUV, Bus Accident
Three people were taken to the hospital as a result of a crash between a school bus and SUV in Delta Township Thursday morning.
The accident happened at around 7:20AM as the school bus was driving away from the Hayes Middle School on Nixon Road. Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich tells us that a southbound Jeep Cherokee went out of its lane and struck the side of the bus. The bus contained Grand Ledge high school students. One student was taken to Sparrow Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
