Morning commute turning frightful


POTSDAM - When school superintendents and transportation directors were looking at the weather in the area this morning, most areas in the region were experiencing rain.

But as dawn broke the rain turned to sleet and then snow making roads, driveways, sidewalks and parking lots extremely slippery. Police and other first responders have been called out to several accidents. Among those were:

Canton Fire and Rescue responded to a two-vehicle accident reported as a head on collision with possible serious injuries at 7:40 a.m. on County Route 25, near Parkway Motors, in the town of Canton.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue responded to a one-vehicle rollover on County Route 47 at 7:15 a.m. Friday. The male driver was reported to be out and walking around his vehicle, according to emergency radio transmissions.
