Icy roads causing dangerous conditions for motorist

Posted: Updated:

Local law enforcement is asking drivers to use caution with freezing temperatures causing dangerous road conditions in the area.

Around 2:30 p.m. , Scottsbluff Police were dispatched to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of East 17th Street and 6th Avenue in Scottsbluff. Officers say that both vehicles were eastbound on East 17th street, and the lead van attempted to make a right hand turn.

The van turned wide, and the car traveling behind it and ran into its side. The car's driver was treated for minor injuries at Regional West Medical Center, and did not require an ambulance.

Freezing temperatures are expected to continue throughout the region until at least next week, and road conditions will remain less than ideal for travel. Low speeds, safety restraints and a safe stopping distance will all help drivers stay safe until there are better road conditions.
