School bus hit by semi truck sliding on ice in Superior Township
A school bus carrying about 20 students from the Willow Run School District was struck from behind by a semi truck sliding on ice Thursday morning in Superior Township, police said.
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office spokesman Derrick Jackson said the bus transporting students from Willow Run Community Schools was travelling north on Gotfredson Road at 10:50 a.m., when it stopped for the stop sign at the intersection with Geddes Road. The semi truck was traveling behind the bus and hit some ice and slid into the back of the bus, Jackson said.
There was little to no damage to the vehicles and no one was injured in the accident, Jackson said.
The crash was just one of many on Washtenaw County roads Thursday morning as drivers struggled to cope with the snowfall that began during rush hour.
Busing for Willow Run Community Schools is supplied by the Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s busing partnership, which also provides service for Ypsilanti Public Schools and Ann Arbor Public Schools.
