January 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Frost covered roads with “black ice” conditions, caught many motorists off guard this morning in western and southwest Iowa. Sheriff’s officials in Adams County report two-rollover accidents took place in the county this morning. Dispatchers in Adair, Guthrie and Shelby Counties also reported motorists sliding-off into the ditches.

In Cass County, three-vehicles spun-off Highway 6 southwest of Atlantic, at around 6:20-a.m.  One of the vehicles rolled onto its top. Another accident was reported west of Atlantic off of Highway 83.  No serious injuries have been reported thus far.
