CACHE COUNTY, Utah – Cache County deputies responded to three separate crashes Friday, and all involved a school bus.

The first was in Paradise, where a school bus carrying 14 children crashed; there were no injuries.

The second was in Millville, and it occurred when a car ran a stop sign and hit a bus. The bus driver was the only one aboard and was not injured.

The third accident was in Newton, and the bus was carrying two children with special needs. There were no injuries in this accident either.

Lt. Mike Peterson said road conditions played a role.

“We have to keep in mind with the weather, I think in all cases weather had something to do with it, even though it wasn`t snowing at the time, the roads are still slick and icy, so we have to be aware of that,” he said.

Officials said people should use caution and slow down, especially during times when school buses are picking up or dropping off students.
