Always remember that winter weather causes many roads to become slippery. Also, high winds make the conditions even more potentially dangerous. This weekend Pennsylvania saw snow, ice and wind.
According to many newspaper and television station reports, last Saturday February 11, 2012 saw many car wrecks and accidents resulting in injuries in Pennsylvania. These crashes coincided with the light snow, some ice and high winds throughout the Commpnwealth of Pennsylvania, from Philadelphia to Harrisburg and out west to Pittsburgh.
For instance in Central Pennsylvania, just outside Lewistown, north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania State Police in Selinsgrove report two McClure residents were injured during a two-vehicle crash. Rodger Joseph Secrest was traveling eastbound along U.S. 522 just west of Beaver Springs around 1:15 p.m. when his vehicle appears to have crossed over the center line and struck a westbound vehicle operated by Ellen L. Knepp.
Police said Rodgers was transported to Geisinger Medical Center for treatment, while Knepp was transported to Evangelical Hospital in Lewisburg. For more on the accident go to the Lewistown Sentinel website at the following link:
This accident and wreck is just one of the many crashes which occurred over the weekend. Please remember to drive even slower when winter weather conditions cause slippery roads.
