KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Multiple accidents were reported Friday morning when rain and freezing rain moved into the metro area.

Among the many accidents, were at least three school bus accidents.

A school bus with kids on board was involved in an accident at 45th and Agnes in Midtown Kansas City.  Then, in Overland Park another school bus was in a non-injury accident at 158th and Lowell.   A third bus accident was also reported in Lee's Summit, near Colbern and Pryor Roads. Like the others, there were no serious injuries and several other cars were also disabled there from the black ice.

FOX 4 sent a crew to the scene of 45th and Agnes, but they experienced similar slick conditions that the bus likely drove through. Our FOX 4 crew was not able to get up a hill to the bus and took this picture of a police car near the scene.

School buses are likely to be running late due to the conditions. The Lee's Summit School District sent out a text alert to tell parents that elementary school buses were running 45 minutes late. They later canceled school for elementary school students.
