The winter weather Wednesday led to multiple mishaps on area roads the past few days. On Wednesday morning an accident occurred on 218 southbound, where a vehicle lost control and slid into the center ditch. The driver was transported to Washington County Hospital and Clinics with injuries. Washington County Maintenance Superintendent JP Van Sickle said yesterday that trying to keep the roads clear of snow was an uphill battle. He says crews are out putting material down this morning. He adds they’re hoping that the wind dies down and it gets warm enough this afternoon to start peeling the compacted snow off the roads.
