MORGAN, Utah — A Morgan County school bus rolled after encountering slick roads Thursday morning.

Gwen Romero, public information officer for the Morgan County School District, told KSL NewsRadio the bus had just started its morning route and had picked up one student before the crash occurred.

Sgt. Cameron Roden with the Utah Highway Patrol said roads were wet and a little slushy and the bus came around a curve on state Route 66, went off the right side of the road and rolled onto its side.

No major injuries were reported and both the student’s parents and county officials had been notified. Romero said the district was making arrangements for other students to be transported to school.

She called the crash a “very isolated incident” and said the district will be investigating, adding student and employee safety is their top priority.

“We’re taking those precautions and that’s why we want to understand what happened in this particular incident because it is so unusual,” Romero said.

A strong winter storm rolled into northern Utah Thursday morning, with mountain snow and valley rain impacting commutes across Utah.

Valley rain is expected to turn to snow later this morning with 4″ to 6″ of snow expected to fall in Salt Lake City. Provo and Ogden are expected to get around 3″ of snow while Park City could see up to 12″ of snow with this storm.
