One of the more serious accidents occurred on the Franklin Avenue Bridge between East 12th Street and Buffalo Road. The accident occurred between a Dodge Caravan and a Ford F-250 although little is known about how the accident occurred. Firefighters freed a girl from the wreckage of the Caravan and two people were transported to the hospital. No identities have been released.
Erie and Millcreek police report that there were many reports of rear-end collisions and cars that slid into ditches, poles and trees. No other injuries were reported.
The best thing motorists can do in weather like this is slow down. The roads are too slippery to allow for quick stops or maneuvers.
