State Police respond to more than 240 wrecks since midnight

By Chris Muldrow | Fredericksburg Today

Wet, slushy snow is falling across the Fredericksburg region as well as much of Virginia. Virginia State Police report that they have responded to more than 240 wrecks statewide since midnight.

“As the snow continues to fall across much of western, central and northern Virginia at this hour, Virginia State Police are responding to traffic crashes throughout,” VSP Spokeswoman Corinne Geller wrote in an email release. “The widespread school, business and government closings for the day are helping keep the number of crashes down. But, Virginia State Police are still encouraging Virginians to delay their travel as conditions are deteriorating, especially in western and Northern Virginia.”

As of 8:45 Wednesday morning, Virginia State Police statewide have been called to 244 traffic crashes. The majority of the crashes have only involved damage to vehicles. There have been no reported traffic fatalities among the 244 crashes.

Roads in downtown Fredericksburg are largely clear, but hard-to-see slush is beginning to accumulate in parking lots and on the edges of less-traveled roads.
