Many Accidents On Icy North Carolina Roads

 Thursday, January 15, 2015


There were so many accidents reported Wednesday morning on icy roads across the Triangle and central North Carolina it quickly got hard to keep track. In Raleigh alone, the city had nearly 40 - compared to about a dozen on a typical day. Freezing rain put a light glazing of ice mainly on bridges and elevated surfaces. Among the dozens of trouble spots reported were overpasses on I-540, Wade Avenue and some of the I-440 ramps, I-40, U.S. 70, Highway 64, I-795, and I-85.On U.S. Highway 64 in Nash County, a tractor-trailer truck hit the car of a deputy helping a motorist in the Nashville area.
