[12/13/16] Icy Conditions Cause Several Traffic Accidents In Douglas County

Posted in Feature, Law Enforcement

Snow and ice created hazardous conditions and caused at least 9 traffic accidents between 9:00 AM on 12/08 and 5:00 PM on 12/09.  Most damage was caused by single vehicles sliding off the road and hitting fences, trees, and road signs.  One collision caused a small fuel leak which was mitigated by the fire department.  There were two non-injury involving two vehicles. 


The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reminds citizens to use extreme caution while navigating treacherous winter driving conditions.
