Weather, unpreparedness result in rash of collisions - Nov. 23, 2017
The Fire Department of North Huron (FDNH) responded to five different collisions on Sunday following a blast of snow that hit the area starting late Saturday evening.
Weather reports called for several centimetres of snow and potentially rain as temperatures dropped and saw the area wake up to white landscapes on Sunday.
Collisions occurred near and in Auburn, Wingham and Blyth and Fire Chief Ryan Ladner says the weather definitely played a factor. Several of the collisions involved multiple vehicles and two resulted in vehicles landing on their roofs.
Ladner went on to say the collisions serve as an important reminder for drivers to be prepared for winter weather and have snow tires on their vehicles.
