Winter Weather and Slippery Roads Causing Traffic Accidents

January 26th, 2015

1-26-15_accidentThe winter weather is causing traffic accidents throughout the area. The accidents began late Monday afternoon as ice, including black ice, formed on many roads. Crashes were reported on Interstate 80 near Peru, on Interstate 180 near Hennepin and on Plank Road in Peru. Traffic accidents were also being handled on Route 40, Route 6 near Wyanet and yet another accident happened near Malden. Authorities say with the very poor road conditions, if you must travel, use caution and be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility. A freezing rain advisory remains in effect until 6:00 Tuesday morning.
