Snow And Icy Roads Cause Multiple Accidents



Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls residents woke up to more than an inch and a half of snow on Sunday morning, making for difficult driving conditions.

 

According to Metro Communications, there were 33 accidents in Minnehaha County from 1 A.M.  through 3 P.M. on Sunday. However, only three of those accidents involved injuries.

 

One accident occurred on Interstate 90 near Brandon when one truck pulling a U-Haul jack-knifed.

 

Plows were out early working to clear the roadways and interstates. While the roadways appeared to be in good shape by late afternoon in Sioux Falls, drivers said other areas of the state weren't exactly ideal for driving, still slick with ice.

 

"The conditions earlier coming from the South to the North were kind of bad. The roads were snowed over and icy. There were wind gusts about 10-15 mph,” said Harold Buchanan, a truck driver heading to Fargo.

 

In some areas wind gusts reached up to 40 mph making it that much more difficult for motorists to stay on the road.

 

To get up to date road conditions you can call 511 or log onto www.safetravelusa.com.
