(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Snow caused white-out conditions and slick roads in some parts of the tri-state Wednesday.
Many parts of southeast Indiana are reporting more than an inch of snow accumulation. The biggest report was 2.5 inches in Friendship and Milan as of noontime.
The snow is expected to taper off by 2:00 this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio.
The weather may be to blame for a handful of accidents. A vehicle overturned on Interstate 74 near the Saint Leon exit about 11:00 a.m. It is unclear if there were any injuries.
A tanker truck overturned on I-71 southbound at mile marker 50 in Carroll County around 10:00. That truck was reported to be leaking milk on the highway following the crash.
Two vehicles collided on Stateline Road near Jeb Drive in Bright.
Indiana State Police in Versailles Sgt. Noel Houze urged motorists to use caution.
“Roads in southeastern and south central Indiana are snow covered slick and hazardous. Unnecessary travel is discouraged. If you must travel, decrease your speed, increase your following distance behind other vehicles, and avoid sudden stops or vehicle maneuvers,” Houze said.
