Police: Slow Down on Icy Roads
Published at | Updated at
REXBURG — Police are reminding drivers to slow down on icy roads as multiple accidents have been reported this week.
On Wednesday, Dec. 30, a driver in a Toyota Prius was cited for driving too fast for conditions after police say she slid off Barny Dairy Road. The car crashed through a fence and suffered extensive damage. The driver was not seriously hurt.
Earlier in the day, a head-on collision was reported at Bellin Road and Outlet Blvd. in Idaho Falls. Police say the driver of a car collided with a truck. Nobody was injured and no citations were issued. Witnesses say the road was extremely slick.
Here’s a reminder of just how much damage slick roads can do. This video was recorded on 400 North in Bountiful, Utah a few years ago and several cars were involved in multiple crashes during a snow storm.
