The police had not reported on the school bus that was overturned at Old Waugh Chapel Road and Waugh Chapel Road in Odenton–reports indicate that there were only minor injuries in that incident.

From the Anne Arundel County Police Department:

The Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to approximately 142 accidents, most of them minor fender benders, between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Our agency and other agencies have handled many of these incidents. Most involved vehicles sliding off the road with property damage only and drivers exchanging information.

At approximately 5:20 a.m. a serious crash was reported at Route 4 at Talbot Road in Tracys Landing involved a truck that went off road into an embankment. There was an entrapment for a period of time. The driver was transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital. The driver sustained non-life threatening injuries.

At approximately 7:11 a.m., officers responded to a crash at Edwin Raynor Boulevard at CountrySide Drive in Pasadena. A Ford Explorer ran into a tree. One of the two occupants of that vehicle was trapped for a period of time. Both victims were taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma.

They have been identified as a 17-year-old male from Pasadena, non-life threatening injuries and a 17-year-old female from Pasadena who has critical injuries. The male was the driver of the vehicle. Both were heading to Northeast High School.

At approximately 7:22 a.m. a 10th-grade female student was driven to school by her mother. The student was dropped off on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard across from the school.  As the female attempted to cross Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd., she slipped and fell onto the roadway. A car traveling on Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. attempted to stop but due to weather conditions was unable to stop.  The vehicles front right side struck the student.

The student, a 15-year-old female, was alert and conscious and was transported to a local hospital as a precaution.
