A van and school bus crashed in blowing snow.
Tonight and into the overnight, heavy snow will be coming down in parts of Ontario.
Forecasters are anticipating up to 10 centimetres to accumulate by the morning. Winds gusting up to 70 kilometres per hour will accompany this snow, making for very poor and reduced visibility on the roads.
We've received a few calls on our Storm Line tonight here at The Weather Network. One caller from London, Ontario informed us that snow was falling heavily there. Another caller from Brockville said that white outs lead to very difficult driving conditions along the 401.
It doesn't take much for accidents to happen. Sergeant Dave Woodoford is with the Ontario Provincial Police and he says drivers need to adjust according to the current weather conditions.
'Stay focused all the time, make sure you have plenty of windshield washer fluid in your reservoir, make sure you slow down when you're driving, seat belt on, and keep that safe distance between you and that driver in front of you,' Woodford told The Weather Network.
