(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Money given to some drivers for Christmas may be going towards body work on their cars.
Snowfall overnight Monday into Tuesday put a fresh one to two inches on the ground. With temperatures still below freezing as of 6:00 a.m. many drivers are finding slick road conditions in southeast Indiana.
Crews are on the scene of a slide-off accident on State Road 1 near Salt Fork Road in Dearborn County reported at about 5:15 a.m. The accident caused traffic to back up in both directions.
Several drivers have reported U.S. 50 between Aurora and Versailles is slushy and slick. There were at least two accidents with cars in the median near Dillsboro on U.S. 50.
SR 129 south of Versailles has had a few slide-offs. One woman described the driving worse this morning than during a winter storm which brought four inches of snow last week.
SR 46 through northern Dearborn and Ripley counties was also less-than-ideal.
Other motorists tell Eagle 99.3 that interstate highways are wet but mostly accident-free. ARTIMIS reports interstate speeds are only slightly slower than normal.
The National Weather Service says the high temperature Tuesday will reach 35. Light freezing rain will continue during the morning. Precipitation that does occur will not last very long in any one location.
