RPD: Eastbound Harrison Avenue between 20th Street and Ohio Parkway is shutdown due to slick conditions and numerous accidents. Use caution at the North Second/Spring Creek interchanges as that area is also extremely slick. Drive slowly and carefully this morning!
We all knew it was coming. The first snow fall, brings a lot of accidents.
Several accidents are being reported all over the area.
The worst ones are on the bypass and also business 20, I-39 and also on I-90. Other roads that are being reported that are very slick: Caledonia road, N Second, Perryville, Harrison, Mulford, Bridge st, N Main, RT 75, Pretty much every main road is slick this morning via RS fan reports.
Several cars in the ditches, some have rolled over. Extrication was needed at a one of the scenes, at Montague and 20.
Injuries have been reported, but I have yet to hear any life threatening injuries. Sounds like most are non life threatening injuries.
Please allow extra time to travel this morning, drive slow and safe
