GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Icy roads are considered to be a factor in two separate crashes. One crash involved a school bus Monday morning and the other crash involved two cars Monday afternoon, according to police.

The crash involving a school bus happened shortly after 7 a.m. at the intersection of Leonard Street NE and Perkins Avenue NE in Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Police Department told News 8 that a car struck a Forest Hills Public School bus. Icy road conditions are considered to be a factor in the crash.

No students were injured in the crash, according to GRPD.

The second crash was a head-on crash in Holland Township, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office .

Deputies were called to James Street, west of 104th Avenue shortly after 12:30 p.m.

They say a car driving eastbound, a Nissan Murano, lost control on the slush and ice, then crossed over into the westbound lane. When this happened, another car, a Honda CR-V, hit the Murano, nearly head-on.

The passenger in the CR-V was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. Two passengers that were in the Murano were also taken to a hospital and are in stable conditions.

Police are advising drivers to take it slow and give yourself extra time Monday.
