BOLTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Icy roads are to blame for a few crashes in our region.

One crash shut down Interstate 89 south early Thursday morning. Police tell us it happened just after 1 a.m. in Bolton when a northbound transit van carrying 14 passengers lost control, went into the median and overturned. None of the injuries reported were believed to have been life-threatening.

I-89 south was also shut down Wednesday night in Richmond around 8:30 p.m. because of a car fire. Police say the driver lost control, hit a guardrail and stopped in the travel lane. Two other cars collided with the first one, causing it to catch on fire. No injuries were reported.

Another crash near Exit 7 in Berlin closed both northbound lanes for a few hours Thursday morning.

Vermont State Police are reminding drivers to slow down and drive for the conditions.
