Carroll County Sheriff’s Office Reports Three Accidents Due To Icy Roads

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office reports three accidents occurred Tuesday morning as a result of icy road conditions. A semi-tractor trailer was pulled off on the shoulder near the intersection of Olympic Avenue and Highway 30 east of Carroll. Another semi was attempting to pass and sideswiped the stopped truck. There was one minor accident in Glidden when a vehicle lost control and slid into a mailbox. Just north of Manning on Delta Avenue, an automobile left the roadway and entered the ditch. It then crashed through a fence and sustained major damage. Sheriff Ken Pingrey says it is fortunate no injuries were reported in those accidents and reminds drivers to use common sense, slow down, be aware of their surroundings and leave space between vehicles when traveling in hazardous road conditions.
