Snow and freezing temperatures cause slick conditions for road travelers

Posted: Updated:

Snow and freezing temperatures sweeping through parts of KOTA Territory cause dangerous conditions for road travelers.
 
Dozens of motor vehicles were slipping and fishtailing through intersections and off-of roadways today.

Including one car that traveled down a steep embankment and through a fence on Highway-26 between Mitchell and Scottsbluff.

Ron's Towing, out of Scottsbluff, says that's the only vehicle they had to tow today, but they saw dozens of tire tracks veering off road ways from vehicles that lost control because of the slick conditions.
 
Nebraska State Patrol says people out on the roads today should use extreme caution, drive slowly, and give themselves plenty of time to get from point A to point B.
