Alaska Receives Heavy Snow And Ice Overnight Leading To Multiple Motor Vehicle Accidents.

Although all drivers should be paying close attention while driving, no matter what the road conditions are, there are times they need to be even more attentive. In the winter months, extra attention needs to be taken because a combination of snow and ice and high rates of speeds can lead to even more car accidents when proper attention isn’t being paid. If you are a victim of an accident involving snow and ice, you should turn to one of the experienced Boston car accident personal injury lawyers or expert snow and ice injury attorneys at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm to help guide you through the process.

Lee County, Alaska received more than 2.5 inches of accumulated snow and ice between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. This prompted the Lee County Emergency Management Agency to send out a warning that all roads in the county were deemed impassable, and citizens should avoid driving until they were clear. Nevertheless, law enforcement officers and emergency crews across the area ended up responding to multiple motor vehicle accidents throughout the day Wednesday.

Most of the accidents were because people were driving too fast, and would run off the road getting stuck in ditches, or strike an object, because of the icy snow covered roads. The heavily-traveled U.S. 280 highway between Opelika, Alaska and Phenix City, Alaska saw much of the action. At one point, a transport truck jack-knifed and blocked traffic in both directions for most of the morning. U.S. 280 West near mile marker 99 was blocked temporarily due to another 18-wheel transport truck being stuck.

Fresh Snow Fall Already Causing Numerous Car Accidents In Anchorage, Alaska.

It’s that time of year, when the weather in the majority of the country begins to change from a warm summer breeze to cool autumn air. There are already areas in the country that have begun to experience the harsh realities that winter is right around the corner. This means that drivers need to be all the more attentive while driving. Snow and ice can play a large factor in a driver’s ability to operate their vehicle safely. If drivers fail to take adequate safety precautions, the possibility to be in an accident increases. If you become victim to an inattentive driver who causes damage to your car or your person, you should turn to one of the experienced Boston car accident personal injury lawyers or expert snow and ice attorneys at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide you through the process.

With 4 inches of fresh snow on the ground in parts of Anchorage, Alaska, people have reported dozens of vehicle accidents in the last week. Anchorage police dispatchers received 65 calls reporting non-injury vehicle accidents, 34 vehicle-in-distress calls, and 10 calls reporting injury accidents in one day. Snow totals ranged from 4 inches in West Anchorage, to just a trace of snowfall on Upper DeArmoun Road, according to the National Weather Service.

According to a local meteorologist, storms usually dump more snow on the Hillside; but because of an inversion, the cold air required for snow was deeper over West Anchorage. In some parts of Eagle River, Alaska, the snow turned to rain, but with the forecast for the upcoming work week being temperatures with highs around 35 degrees, the snow is likely to stick around.
