Last updated on Monday, December 7, 2009

(UNDATED) - The first snow of the season for much of Indiana is creating some travel problems.

Light snow moved across much of southern and central Indiana this morning.

Numerous slide-offs and crashes are being reported on state highways and interstates.

At least 8 car wrecks were reported into the Lawrence County Sheriff Department with six of those wrecks being road slide-offs.

Two cars were flipped upside down and one school bus was hit by a smaller car, although no children were on the bus at the time.

Police officials say that no one was injured in Lawrence County as a result of this morning's snowfall.

State police say one person died in a crash this morning in a multiple vehicle crash in Clinton County.

One southbound lane on I-65 was closed, but has since reopened.

The Tippecanoe County and Clinton County Sheriff's Departments were also fielding numerous crashes and slide-offs this morning.

Indianapolis Police say a Lawrence Township bus was involved in a property damage accident with a SUV.

Power lines were knocked down on the bus.

No injuries were reported.

The Indiana Department of Transportation said it had several vehicles on the road since Sunday trying to clear snow.
