Monday's wet weather could be to blame for several crashes around the region.

Three people had to be taken to the hospital after one accident involving a school bus on Pine Valley Road in Perry County.

Drivers around the region found Monday's heavy rain a force to be reckoned with on the roads.

Police think slick roads are to blame for one accident on Monday afternoon, involving a car that collided with a Perry County school bus.

Both drivers and one student were the ones hurt.

The driver of the car had the most serious injuries but nothing is believed to be life-threatening.

Neighbors said an accident was bound to happen because of how narrow and steep the road is.

Transportation officials say hundreds of accidents are caused every year because of wet driving conditions.

Police officers said they received several reports of accidents in the area because of slick roads on Monday.

Police say folks need to keep a safe distance, drive slower and avoid puddles when driving in the rain.
