Aftermath of storm means icy, snowy conditions

PRINCETON, W. Va (WVVA)-- As reporters were out and about, they say they noticed a lot of careful drivers.

But there were also accidents, drivers spinning wheels and sliding around when laying on the brakes.

 

One driver says he really takes the "slow down" advice seriously when conditions are like this.

"What I do, and many people have proven this to be true," said Craig Hammond, "is I put it in neutral and feather the brakes, and you should make it down the hill very safely."

Highway crews have been out plowing and dumping mixes onto the roads to help with traction, as well as dumping salt, but some say that's no substitute for just good old careful driving.
