School bus, motorcycle involved in multi-vehicle accident

Police say a blinding sun may have been the cause for two accidents on Baldwin Road this morning.

The first accident, police say, involved two vehicles on Baldwin and McWain roads. At least one of the drivers, police believe, was blinded by the sun, causing a collision.

Grand Blanc Township police say the second accident occurred when a van pulled over onto the side of the road and turned on his hazards, in an attempt to warn other drivers about the first accident. However, an eastbound vehicle, with its driver apparently also blinded by the sun, struck the van and then struck a motorcycle.

The motorcycle was stopped behind a school bus that was picking up some children.

No serious injuries occurred with either accident. The motorcycle rider was taken to Hurley with non-life threatening injuries.

It appears that the children on the school bus were later picked up by another school bus.

Baldwin Road is currently closed in both directions around McWain at this time.
