Shawnee County Sheriff Deputies had to shutdown a portion of Auburn Road after a series of wrecks, including one involving a school bus.

The wrecks were reported around 8:30am in the 5100 block and 5500 block of SW Auburn Road.

The first wreck involved a school bus from the Auburn-Washburn Schools, in the 5500 block of Auburn Road.

According Auburn-Washburn schools, the bus was stopped to pick up a student when a car crested a hill and couldn't stop. The car then slid on the snow covered road and hit the bus head-on.

One student suffered a cut to the leg, but their parents said the student could still attend school.

49 students were on the bus at the time of the crash.

The other wreck was between a pickup and car. Both went into a ditch in the 5100 block of Auburn.

Deputies say the car was southbound on Auburn when it crossed the center line and collided head on with the pickup that was headed north.

The driver of the car suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital. The driver of the pickup was uninjured.

Auburn Road was shutdown for a time. It has reopened.
