Between 6 and 6:30 a.m. Monday a light glazing drizzle began moving across the area. Within minutes streets and highways around the metro were extremely slick.

Numerous crashes were reported all across wide areas of Douglas, Sarpy and Pottawattamie counties. While radio reports indicated that some people were being taken to hospitals, it was not clear just how severe any injuries were.

For the most part traffic everywhere was moving at a crawl which helps reduce the chance of injury when there is a crash.

A school bus was involved in a crash with a car at Highway 370 and Golden Blvd. There were no injuries but the children on the bus were sent home. Initial reports are that the bus could not stop and slid down the hill hitting the car.

In the area of 48th and Pratt a Metro bus was unable to stop coming down a hill. It slid across the intersection, rammed into a pickup truck sitting in a driveway, which then rammed into the home on the property. One person was slightly injured.
