Wet weather, icy roads lead to accidents, closings across SE Mich.

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (WJBK) -- Slick roads across metro Detroit Friday morning turned into several near deadly accident scenes.

Police say a mother and her daughter were struck by a car while crossing Manchester Street around 8 a.m. The pair was taken to a nearby hospital. Their exact conditions are not known.

In Berkley, a crossing guard was hit by a car in front of Anderson Middle School. He was treated by emergency crews. No children were injured in the accident.

Rain lead to ice in some parts of Michigan, closing schools in rural areas and knocking out electricity.

Consumers Energy says hundreds of people lost power in downtown Flint Friday morning. Lapeer schools in Lapeer County told kids to stay home because rural roads are too slick. The weekend also is starting early for some schools in the Thumb as well as in Isabella, Clare, Oakland and Mecosta counties.

Despite the slippery roads, the weather is expected to turn much warmer in much of Michigan this weekend with high temperatures in the 50s.
