Vehicle slide offs and fender benders were common Thursday as the first significant storm of this winter rolled through. Missouri Highway Patrol troopers say crosswinds blew a school bus off Missouri 15 a half mile north of Shelbyville at 10:15 Thursday morning. An 11-year-old boy was taken to Samaritan Hospital in Macon for treatment of minor injuries.

A one vehicle crash on Marion County Route Z four miles north of Monroe City at 7:40 Thursday evening results in minor injuries for a Philadelphia woman. The Missouri Highway Patrol says a vehicle driven by 51-year-old Kevin Douglas slid off the road and into a fence post. A passenger, 49-year-old Sheila Lorenson of Philadelphia, was taken to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Some roads were closed for a while Thursday as a result of poor visibility and numerous slide-offs.
