SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Cold temperatures along with light snow and rain have created slick and slippery road conditions on many roads Wednesday morning.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol has posted a few reminders for drivers in winter weather conditions. Authorities are reminding people to slow down and remember to wear your seatbelt. Also, if your car is covered with ice, assume the road is icy too.
Bridges become ice-covered before roads.
One crash on Interstate 299 happened when a driver lost control on a bridge over the Big Sioux River. In Deuel County, one car lost control after going over an icy bridge Tuesday. The car crashed the median and was hit by a semi truck.
The Sioux Falls Police Department said multiple crashes were reported overnight and reminded drivers to take extra time and slow down.
