Hours after the snow stopped falling, several roads are still very slick.

 

Emergency crews responded to a pair of accidents on Highway 64/40 that happened just moments apart. West of the Boone Bridge a driver hit a patch of ice and spun off the highway. The driver was not hurt and no one else was in the car. While officers were responding to that accident another car hit the same ice patch. That car flipped over and one person was thrown from the vehicle. A person from the second car was airlifted to the hospital.

 

MoDOT is reminding drivers they can report untreated areas by calling 888.ASK.MODOT.

MoDOT preparing for wintry weather

Officials with the Missouri Department of Transportation are preparing for expected winter weather this week.

MoDOT crews are ready to plow and treat roads as needed. They want to remind drivers that even a light precipitation can cause roads to become slick. Motorists should allow for extra time when there has been inclement weather.

One of the easiest ways to check road conditions is the MoDOT Traveler Information Map which can be found at modot.org.

MoDOT also released some tips for driving in inclement weather:

      ·Slow down.

      ·Steer and brake gently.

      ·Accelerate slowly at intersections.

      ·Allow extra space between your vehicle and the one ahead of you.

      ·Stay back 100 feet from snow plows that may be spreading salt.

      · Avoid passing snow plows, even when on a multi-lane road.

      ·Be aware that bridges and overpasses generally experience freezing conditions first.
