Multiple Traffic Accidents Slow A.M. Commute

It's not even winter yet and we're already having multiple traffic accidents slowing things down.

A series of crashes between 7 and 8 a.m. today slowed traffic in several locations. One at the south end of the Maple Street Bridge involved two vehicles and blocked traffic, according to police.

Another, on U.S. Highway 2 in the vicinity of Oregon Road, slowed traffic in the northbound lane. There were also accidents at Post Street and Mansfield Avenue, Frederick Street and Freya Avenue, and Belt Avenue and Glass Street.

In all those accidents, only one injury was reported. That's good news, but what's going on out there folks? Let's slow down and be observant.
