COLUMBIA CITY â Three days after Winter Storm Ion came to the area, road conditions were still poor in Whitley County Wednesday morning, as there were several reported crashes and slide-offs.
âPeople think they have traction and the road is glazed in ice,â Whitley County Sheriff Chief Deputy Marcus Gatton said. âItâs been so cold they canât use salt to help break up ice.â
Gatton said the Sheriffâs Department had eight reported slide-offs from 4:30 to 8:30 a.m.
