Frost covered roads contributed to numerous accidents this morning in the listening area, most of which were reported in Pottawattamie County. A rollover accident was also reported in Mills County, and a non-injury accident in Guthrie County, occurred near the Adair-Casey Community Schools. Details on those incidents are currently not available.

In Cass County, Chief Deputy Sheriff John Westering told KJAN News frosty roads caused an accident this morning on the A-T&T curve north of Lewis. The accident happened at around 6:50-a.m. at the intersection of Whitepole Road and 582nd Street. Westring says a 2005 Chevy Impala driven by Austrid Cohrs, of Lewis, was traveling northbound around the curve when Cohrs lost control of the vehicle, which then went into a ditch, traveled 12-feet down an embankment, and landed upright, wedged  in a concrete culvert. No injuries were reported to either Cohrs or her two young children. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $6,500.
