A Willard Elementary school bus crashed into a ditch on Friday afternoon in Norwich Township.

Saturday morning, a lake freighter became stuck in the ice in Sandusky Bay, requiring assistance from a U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker.

Saturday afternoon, a Sandusky man plowed into a lamppost on Milan Avenue, crushing the front end of his truck.

Light snow showers on Friday afternoon strengthened into a blizzard Saturday morning, dumping about eight inches of snow or more on Sandusky, said Mark Adams, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Cleveland.
