Another wintry blast leads to havoc on area roads

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): It was a dicey morning commute in and around Fort Wayne, to say the least.

Police dispatchers in Allen and surrounding counties reported dozens of slide-off crashes, as well as several involving multiple vehicles. One crash involving a jack-knifed semi led to the complete closure of Northbound Interstate 69 near Jefferson Blvd. in Fort Wayne.

Police agencies are advising motorists to drive slower than usual today, as new snowfall combined with already ice-covered roads led to more slick conditions. Some relief is coming, however, as temperatures are expected to finally rise above freezing this weekend.
