The Gazette is reporting that snowfall was making Monday mornings commute a little troublesome. Several crashes snarled traffic throughout El Paso County, especially in Monument and Black Forest. A roll-over crash slowed northbound traffic near I-25 and Baptist Road at about 6:15 this morning. The roads were covered in black ice forcing some commuters to abandon their vehicles. Road conditions prompted the El Paso and Teller County Sheriff’s and the Colorado Springs Police Department to go on accident alert status.
Inclement weather can make an ordinarily safe road into a treacherous one. According to CarInsuranceList.com, there were almost 6.5 million car accidents in the U.S. In 2005. More than 45,000 people were killed and almost 3 million injured.
