WATERLOO — Icy roads led to several accidents in Black Hawk County during the morning rush hour Wednesday, including two crashes involving school buses in Waterloo.

A MET Transit bus and a Waterloo school bus collided at the intersection of Independence Avenue and Idaho Street around 8:15 a.m. Few children were on the school bus and none were injured, but one man from the MET bus was treated for minor injuries.

A second bus accident was reported at West Third and Baltimore Street around 9 a.m. Again, no students were injured.

Waterloo police responded to nearly 40 weather-related accidents in a 90-minute period.

Because of deteriorating road conditions, Waterloo’s Sanitation Department stopped garbage pickup Wednesday. Residents with Wednesday collection were asked to have their carts on the curb by 6 a.m. Thursday.

In addition, Republic Service curbside collection of recyclables also pulled its trucks off of the roads and planned to collect Wednesday routes on Thursday.
