Traffic was snarled on two major roadways in Glendale Wednesday afternoon as police responded to a pair of accidents, one of which resulted in a fatality.

The first incident occurred at 4:15 p.m. at the corner of Woodhaven Boulevard and 81st Road, when a sedan collided with a school bus. Reportedly, the bus was carrying disabled passengers.

Police said the sedan driver and all in the school bus were brought to area hospitals for treatment of minor injuries. However, the main section of Woodhaven Boulevard was closed while police and Fire Department units responded to the crash.

Then, at 6:35 p.m., a motorcycle traveling on the westbound Jackie Robinson Parkway swerved and struck a light pole near Cypress Hills Street, authorities said. The victim, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigations into both accidents are ongoing.
