The central part of the American State of Kentucky is witnessing a rampant surge in difficulties for local drivers in the wake of wintery weather.
This Tuesday morning’s snowy weather wracked havoc on drivers making driving riskier for some routine drivers. Numerous accidents in Lexington resulted due to unpleasant weather conditions. Moreover, police received several emergency calls, and accident cases were also reported.
On one occasion, a semi-truck jackknifed on Paris Pike close to the boundary with Bourbon County, causing obstructions to the flow of traffic massively.
Between Tuesday night and 8:30 in the morning, Lexington police were informed about nine non-injury collisions and received five assistance calls from motorists.
The numbers were far lesser than last Friday when the police responded to more than 90 requests for help due to the icy roads.
The police crews in the city worked overnight to prepare the roads for the winter weather by sprinkling salt, which made a significant difference in dropping the number of accidents and driving experiences.
Lincoln County residents awoke to a coating of ice and faced little road issues. There wasn’t much else save the ice-covered trees and several cars.
Chilly drizzle remained throughout the day, which required drivers to de-ice their vehicles before leaving.
Many of the roads were simply muddy. Students took the day off from school, and there wasn’t much traffic outside.
Police officials advised people to make proper preparations, drive unhurriedly, allow extra time and space, and go securely.
