It wasn't just the roads that were a problem; the wet heavy snow was piling up on stop lights around the region. The pile-up was preventing some motorists from seeing the signal.
Toni Mayo, Indiana Department of Transportation, says crews with bucket trucks went to stop lights and cleared them off.
“I know that our signal techs are very tiered but we’ve got to keep those lenses visible,” said Mayo.
First responders were also swamped. Fort
The Allen County Sheriff’s Department saw 53 slide-offs, 14 total accidents with 2 involving injuries.
“Our Crew is going to be on call until midnight then we are going to be on-call for certain locations,” said Mayo.
