Winter Weather Arrival Causes Traffic Chaos

The Friday morning arrival of wintery weather kept the Sheriff’s offie busy with one rollover accident and numerous cars in the ditch. The first rollover accident was reported after 6:00 a.m. on U.S. Hwy 275 about ten miles east of Norfolk when a eastbound pickup driven by a rural Norfolk teen on his way to school left the roadway and rolled. The teen driver was wearing his seatbelts properly and this prevented serious injuries. The pickup he was driving is considered a total loss. The Sheriff’s office also assisted in several other calls of vehicles in the ditch or having slid off the roadway due to the very icy road conditions.
