Christmas Eve Snow Sends Cars Skidding

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a Christmas Eve snowfall across much of northern and central Maryland is making driving conditions hazardous.

Troopers in Hagerstown responded to multiple single-vehicle accidents Monday afternoon on roads covered by wet snow.

State police in Washington and Frederick counties implemented snow emergency plans. The orders restrict parking on designated routes.

State Highway Administration spokeswoman Sandra Dobson says crews are working to keep road surfaces clear. She says little accumulation is expected before the storm ends Monday night.
