Police are advising drivers to clear ice from their vehicles following an incident involving flying ice and a bus in Mississauga.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m., Peel Paramedics took to social media to praise a bus driver for making a safe stop after the vehicle was damaged by flying ice.

“Hats off to the bus driver for keeping this bus safe and on two wheels,” Paramedics wrote in a tweet.

The incident, which involved flying ice breaking through the windshield of a Safeway Tours bus, occurred on the westbound QEW at Erin Mills Parkway.

Shortly before noon, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt reminded residents to clear all ice off their vehicles to prevent such incidents from happening.

“This is why we tell you to clear the ice and snow off of your vehicles… #FlyingIce,” Schmidt wrote.

Paramedics say the driver suffered minor injuries.
