It happened near Pinch Highway near Johnson rd.

Eaton County deputies responded to a report of a school bus that had rolled over on Pinch Hwy near Otto Road at 7:20 a.m. this morning.

The bus was carrying seven students from the Potterville School District at the time.

One student suffered a minor injury, who went home with a family member.

No other vehicles were involved and no other injuries were reported.

“We are beyond thankful no students or others were seriously injured in this accident and were able to be released to guardians at the scene,” said Kellie Dean, President of Dean Transportation in a press release. “We also give our thanks to the first responders who arrived quickly for their top-notch assistance,”

A couple of the comments left on the Facebook post by parents said that their children or relatives were on the bus.

The icy condition of the road leading up to this intersection appears to be the primary factor in this crash.
