La Crosse Busy With Accidents
Since 6 am today, emergency personnel have responded to at least 20 motorist assists (mostly slide-offs), 28 collisions, and 4 car crashes with injuries. One collision involved a vehicle striking a snow plow and another collision involved a vehicle rear-ending a city bus.
A typical day during good summer weather has about 5- 10 collisions during a 24-hour period and just a few motorist assist calls. It is uncertain how many of today's incidents are weather-related.
The snow is tapering off, but the afternoon rush-hour is just beginning.
