Car accidents can happen in any road conditions, but during the winter months icy roads and poor visibility certainly increases the chances. A recent multi-vehicle accident involving a state trooper closed parts of Route 3 for more than two hours last month. The slippery road conditions due to ice are considered to be a factor in the crash, according to a news report.
Four vehicles were involved in total in the wreck, including a state trooper, who was one of the people treated for injuries. The driver of a box truck involved in the crash and the driver of another vehicle were both taken to a hospital, treated and released, according to a news report.
