Police busy on wet roads

MT. VERNON — Illinois State Police and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department stayed busy on Sunday, following a winter storm that brought about 4 inches of snow to the region.

Forecasters were correct in their predictions that rainfall would start on Saturday evening, followed by the winter blast on Sunday that started as rain, then turned to sleet, followed by the snowfall.

According to unofficial reports, law enforcement officials responded to 15 traffic accidents on Sunday — nine of them on Interstates 57 and 64 — that meet just north of Mt. Vernon.

The first accident occurred just after 11 a.m. when a car was reported in the median on Interstate 57 at mile post 83. The string of accidents continued until just after 7 p.m. when a motorist struck a sign on the East Divide Road in Bluford.
