The icy weather that came through the Wabash Valley Friday evening caused havoc for Clay County officials.
On his way to an accident on State Road 42, Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton said he was traveling barely 15 mph.
"No matter where you go, back roads, the highway, it's bad," Heaton told The Brazil Times.
"It seems like you can get a little bit of traction on the gravel roads, but that's about it."
Heaton added on his way to the accident on SR 42, he noticed to state trucks off the roadway on State Road 59. In addition, there were reports of a tanker truck that had slid off United States 40 East.
Heaton said his department realized with the icy conditions heading into the area, traffic accidents would increase.
"We knew with the ice coming, we had that potential," he said. "We have extra guys out working."
As of 10 p.m., Friday evening, Heaton said there were still vehicles on the roadways.
However, he said it didn't appear the weather was going to clear up through the night.
"If you have to travel, use extreme caution," he said. "There is still traffic out here moving."
Officials with Clay County Dispatch informed The Brazil Times they had received calls regarding "numerous" slide off vehicles "everywhere on every road."
Clay County Highway Department Superintendent Pete Foster told The Brazil Times the roads were almost too slick even for his crews.
"They are almost impassable," Foster said.
