Law enforcement agencies were kept busy Sunday as vehicles skidded off snowy roadways.
The Ohio Department of Transportation recorded 3 inches of snowfall Sunday in Hancock, Allen and Henry counties, while less snow was recorded in Hardin, Putnam, Seneca and Wyandot counties. But Toledo got 7 inches.
A mix of snow and rain descended on the area later Sunday.
Findlay police responded to at least three traffic mishaps in the city.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office reported a slew of traffic accidents beginning Sunday morning. One crash may have involved minor injuries, according to a sheriff’s deputy.
Putnam and Wood counties both were under a level one weather alert Sunday night, which warns drivers of hazardous travel conditions.
Some wrecks were noted in those counties, none involving serious injuries.
“People forgot how to drive again,” an exasperated Wood County sheriff’s deputy said.
Vehicles also went off roads and into ditches in Wyandot, Putnam and Seneca counties.
The back roads of Seneca County were troublesome for motorists, according to the sheriff’s office.
No bad accidents were reported along Interstate 75, the Findlay post of the State Highway Patrol post said.
But the interstate was becoming icy by Sunday night, the patrol advised.
