Winter Storm Hits Connecticut

images-3.jpegAnother winter storm hit Connecticut and the surrounding areas.  It was forecasted that around 10 inches of snow might fall by Saturday.  A winter storm warning is in effect until Saturday morning.

The storm was responsible for at least 165 accidents and one death.  The state police had to respond to over 100 accidents by 9:00 am and warned drivers to stay home if at all possible.  Southbound lanes on Interstate 95 were shut down in Greenwich for a couple of hours before dawn because several tractor-trailers jackknifed.

Unfortunately, many people were left stranded on the side of the road in frigid temperatures because they didn’t have road service.  People with emergency roadside assistance were lucky because they received help in a timely manner.  This is a good lesson to all motorists to sign up for a road service program.  You never know when you might be stuck in bad weather and need assistance.
