Area emergency personnel were very busy throughout yesterday afternoon and into the night, as winter snow moved through the area making roadway hazardous. Sheriff Eaton and deputies responded to numerous stranded motorists all throughout the county that had traveled off the snow-covered roads, but needed no report. The office only worked a few wrecks that required reports of those no serious injuries were reported, one included a school bus in which no students were on and resulted in only minor injuries.

BCSO Public Relations Director Trevor Phillips said “The volunteer fire departments did a tremendous job throughout the county in helping the Sheriff’s office responded to stranded motorist”.  Phillips wants to also remind drivers to use extreme caution when driving on wet or snow covered roads and allow extra time to arrive at your destination, before traveling let someone know your timetable and route.

Lt. Col. Kent Keen with the Glasgow Police Department says that agency has investigated 6 non injury accidents since 6:00am Thursday morning, and provided 17 motorist assist.
