At about 1:10 pm this date, a westbound Lake Shore Electric 1-car train struck a Greyhound Bus at the US-20 grade crossing. The LSE crossing had no active warning devices. There was mixed snow and rain. The bus stopped short of the xg and then proceeded across as the interurban train closely approached.

22 passengers on the bus were killed and 9 were injured along with 4 injuries on the LSE train.

This would be one of the old low-slung Greyhound buses, with the cargo rack on the roof.
