January 31, 2013

Police in Washington County are warning motorists to use caution driving because of ice that is forming on roads throughout the county.

Police said there have been several accidents because of the ice, and state and county road crews are treating the icy areas.

There are seven locations where ice has formed on roads, according to a Washington County 911 dispatcher.

“We’re getting more and more calls,” the dispatcher said.

Police handled a rollover crash on Lappans Road at Bob’s Lane, a crash on Cearfoss Pike near Shinham Road and an accident on Blairs Valley Road after the ice started forming, emergency officials said.

The crashes only resulted in minor injuries, officials said.

Hagerstown received 1.74 inches of rain through early Thursday morning and the temperature has dropped to 27.1 degrees in the city as of 9:22 p.m., according to Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer’s website at i4weather.net.
