Louisville, KY—Icy conditions were to blame when a car slid into a Jefferson County school bus on Tuesday morning, January 26, 2010. The two-vehicle collision occurred around 8:30 a.m., on Preston Highway near the Gene Snyder Freeway, where the mornings snow fall made the roadways dangerous to navigate, as reported by WAVE3.

The car then veered over the median, and slammed into the bus head-on. Three students aboard the bus were reportedly injured in the collision. They were rushed by emergency medical services (EMS) teams to Kosair Children’s Hospital for treatment of their undisclosed injuries. Their conditions were not immediately available.

Officials reported there were many minor accidents reported that day involving JCPS buses, due to the icy roads and fresh snowfall.
