Morning Commute Slowed By Slick Roads

A rainy, freezing drizzle caused bug problems for metro commuters Tuesday morning. 

Omaha Police were on accident alert by 5:30 because of the high volume of crashes, and Sarpy County law enforcement declared their alert soon after Omaha. Officers were not responding to any accidents that were non-injury and could be safely moved off the roadway. 

The slick roads lead to a number of accidents including a number of multi-vehicle accidents across the metro. A crash involving as many as fifteen vehicles tied up traffic on eastbound L Street near 108th and another crash near Dahlman and F Streets piled eight cars up. 

Tuesday morning's freezing drizzle is expected to change to snow mid-morning. Then off-and-on light snow through the afternoon. Snow accumulations will be at less than an inch. Strong winds will move in by late morning and continuing through the afternoon with gusts from 25 to 45 MPH.
