Steady snow causes hazardous road conditions for morning commute

ST JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind – As snow fell steady across Michiana Friday morning, local police said the hazardous road conditions caused dozens of accidents in St. Joseph and Elkhart counties.

Several drivers slid off the roads, hit poles, and crashed into other vehicles throughout the morning on main streets, back roads, and highways.
As of 8 a.m., Mishawka police noted Dragoon Trail had a few accidents happen within one hour.
Elkhart county officers said U.S. 33 and S.R. 6 were hot spots causing problems for drivers.
In St. Joseph County, several vehicles slid right through stop signs and busy intersections like Cleveland Road and State Road 23, as well as Ireland Road and Ironwood Drive.
At least three accidents were reported on U.S. 20. Drivers told ABC 57 they saw many cars getting off the bypass in masses due to the road conditions.
Plow trucks were out in full force, clearing the roads throughout the morning.
Road conditions were expected to improve by midday Friday.
