Weather-related traffic accidents

On today’s date between 0700 Hrs and 1630 Hrs the Frederick Police Department handled 15 traffic accidents. The accidents were caused primarily by the poor weather and road conditions. No serious injuries resulted from the accidents. The Department of Public Works has been salting heavily. However, temperatures will get into the low 20’s tonight. This combined with the wet roads could cause severe icing. Citizens should refrain from driving unnecessarily, and use caution when operating vehicles within Frederick City during the evening hours.
