Snow, then sub-zero temperatures, cause slippery roads
The thaw-freeze cycle made for slippery roads in the Hudson area on the last day of 2013.
The wet roads created by Monday’s snowfall froze when the temperature dropped well below zero overnight – and stayed below zero.
At about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, a silver Mercedes-Benz crashed through a guardrail on Hwy. 35 south of Interstate 94 and came to rest in the median beneath the Tower Road overpass.
It was one of several accidents in the Hudson area on New Year’s Eve.
