Drifting snow makes roads dangerous
LARRY NEFF/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
State police have been kept busy investigating numerous accidents, many being contributed to drifting snow across the roadways. One accident occurred just before 1 p.m. Saturday just north of the intersection of Route 903 and Maury Road in Penn Forest Township, Carbon County. A sport utility vehicle being operated north through the intersection encountered such a condition with the driver losing control. The unit left the right berm, crashed through a farm fence rolling several times before coming to rest on its wheels. Maury Road, pictured here, had numerous drifting conditions covering the roadway. PennDOT delivered snow fences to the area in the late fall, but they have not yet been erected.
