No injuries in 7-vehicle Watertown pileup involving school bus
WATERTOWN (AP) — Icy conditions in eastern South Dakota led to a low-speed pileup on a curve southwest of Watertown that involved a school bus, a semitrailer and five other vehicles.
Codington County Sheriff Toby Wishard said no one was hurt in the crash early Tuesday. He didn't immediately know how many students were on the Watertown bus but said all were safe.
Wishard estimated speeds at no faster than 10 mph. He said damage was minor and no drivers involved were cited for any traffic violations.
Strong winds and blowing snow caused travel problems throughout both Dakotas early Tuesday. The National Weather Service also posted a winter storm warning for the central and northern Black Hills of western South Dakota. Forecasters said two-day snow totals could reach a foot in some areas.
