DELTA TOWNSHIP - 3 people were taken to the hospital as a result of a crash between a school bus and SUV in Delta Township this 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 News 10 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. The sheriff says the driver and a passenger in the Jeep were also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The sheriff says slippery roads were a factor in the accident. Another bus was quickly brought to take the remaining high school students to school.

    Most SUV's are rear wheel drive causing them to slide all over the place on slippery surfaces when pressing on the accelerator. Put your SUV in 4WD high when driving on snow covered roads. It will help prevent the back end from sliding out on you. You can also place weighted items such as bags of sand in the trunk, to weigh down the real wheels for better traction.

    If the picture in this story is of the Jeep involved, it is a Jeep Liberty not Jeep Cherokee.

    This information is incorrect. One of the passengers in the jeep is in critical condition.

    Maybe now Eaton county will actually plow the roads, rather than sprinkle a little bit of salt on them...
