STURBRIDGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts police officer who helped a stranded bus through the snow had no idea it would involve Blood, Sweat & Tears.

Sturbridge police Sgt. Kevin Mercier met members of the '60s rock band Saturday when he saw a bus driver struggling as a snowstorm blanketed the region. Mercier stopped traffic and helped direct the bus as it backed down a street. The band was staying at a Sturbridge hotel between shows in Hartford and Boston.

The band is touring with singer and American Idol alum Bo Bice as lead singer.

Mercier told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette that he didn't immediately recognize the band, but a quick Google search helped refresh his memory of its hit songs, which include "Spinning Wheel" and "You've Made Me So Very Happy."
