Motorists should continue to use
caution when driving. There has been scattered light freezing mist and snow
falling over the area. Roads may have new scattered slick spots. While most
roads are clear, some rural and neighborhood roads continue have slick areas due
to packed snow with ice below that.
A trip down I-55 can be a sobering
experience. Numerous cars remain snowbound in the median and off the sides of roadways
that have been slick this past week. Many motorists sustained minor
injuries after losing control of their vehicles. In one case a Rochester man
died after being thrown from his rolling Jeep. Authorities continue to urge
motorists to slow down and use caution as the weather warrants.
