Truck hits BCRTA bus and flees as part of Butler County morning driving issues

Slushy roads are causing some problems in Butler County this morning, especially in rural areas like Ross Twp. but for the most part drivers are being cautious, according to emergency dispatchers.

A pick-up truck sideswiped a BCRTA bus earlier this morning on Route 4 at Todhunter Road and left the scene, but there were no injuries, according to a Monroe Police dispatcher. The crash happened at 7:15 a.m. and was cleared.

Fairfield, Madison and Ross townships have been problematic this morning, but no serious crashes, according to Butler County dispatch.

Betsy Horton with the County Engineer’s office said crews have been out all night and the northern part of the county has seen the biggest weather impact.

“Roads don’t seem to be slick but are slushy,” Horton said. “We’ve been cleaning up intersections and are confident that by noon all should be clear.”
