Snow-Covered Southern Indiana Roads Lead to Crashes

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) _ Counties across southern Indiana are warning motorist of treacherous travel conditions following several inches of snowfall.
 
The National Weather Service reports 5.5 inches of snow had fallen by noon EST near the town of Oolitic in Lawrence County and also near Vincennes, and 5 inches had fallen in Bedford and in the town of Newburgh east of Evansville.
 
Indiana State Police say they've worked nearly 150 crashes and nearly 50 slide-offs.
 
Floyd and Clark counties in southeastern Indiana, just north of Louisville, Kentucky, have issued travel warnings, meaning residents should refrain from all travel. Several other counties have issued travel watches and recommend only essential travel, such as to and from work or for emergencies.
