March 26, 2013

A Washington County Sheriff’s Office officer hit a guardrail on Interstate 81 on Tuesday morning in an accident that might have been caused by icy conditions, officials said.

Washington County Sheriff Douglas W. Mullendore said it appears Tim Atwell encountered black ice when his police car went into the guardrail.

Atwell’s vehicle sustained minor damage and Atwell was not hurt, according to Mullendore.

The accident occurred about 7:30 a.m. at about the 10-mile marker on southbound I-81, a Washington County 911 supervisor said.
