Snow, Sleet & Rain Coat Roads, Close Schools In Parts Of Md.
BALTIMORE (WJZ)— Another round of winter weather hit Maryland Monday. Some parts saw several inches of snow, while others saw mostly rain.
Alex DeMetrick has more on the conditions in western Maryland.
A new month and another blast of winter…but this time, it comes with a seriously injured child.
Snow presents its own allure, especially when it means a day off from school. But in Harford County, a sledding accident left a 10-year-old girl with serious injuries when she was impaled by a piece of steel rebar apparently hidden by the snow.
Fortunately, most other accidents were not so severe, but in Frederick County, there were a lot of them when rain switched over to sleet and snow.
“We probably handled to this point about 30 accidents, most of them minor–vehicles sliding off the roadways, disabled vehicles,” said Lt. Todd May. “We’ve been very busy.
Road crews concentrated first on main roads. On side streets, the wait for plows is always longer. But first, you have to get out. This is the third significant snow this winter for Carroll and Frederick counties.
“I took the day off. I work in Frederick; it’s a little hard to drive in this kind of weather,” said one.
Main roads are mostly OK but side roads still remain an issue.
