Winter driving caution urged

Motorists are being reminded of the return of winter driving conditions.

A pickup truck went off Kestrel Place in Vernon  Friday at about 9:20 a.m. and rolled two or three times before coming to rest 20 feet below the road.

“There were slippery conditions, very hazardous,” said Jack Blair, deputy fire chief.

“It was basically a skating rink.”

The driver of the truck was not injured, however, it took firefighters some time to leave the scene.

“The fire truck started to slip because it was so icy,” said Blair.

“They stayed there until the contractor that serves the area came with some sand.”

While there, firefighters assisted a resident who slipped in his driveway and banged his head. His injuries are not known.
