SE Wisconsin’s First Snowfall Triggered A Flurry Of Accidents
The first snowfall of the season turned out to be slippery one in southeast Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Department of Public Works had 111 salt trucks on the main roads early Saturday in an attempt to stay on top of the snow. Roads remained slippery in the evening as city crews turned their attention to the side streets in an attempt to clear out snow before temperatures drop overnight.DPW officials say they’ll be out as long as it takes to clear the roads. Despite public pleas for drivers to slow down, accidents were still reported throughout the viewing area.
