Sunday snowfall causes poor road conditions

MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – The snow on Sunday created tough commutes for some travelers.

Storm Team 2 is forecasting as much as an inch of snow to three in parts of the Miami Valley.

“It took me about an hour to get here,”

Heavier totals are expected for Warren, Butler and Clinton counties. Those areas are currently under a Winter Weather Advisory until 10 A.M. on Monday.

“It took me about an hour to get here,” said Hamilton resident Teresa Flenner, who drove north to shop near the Dayton Mall.

“I didn’t think it was going to be this bad. Some drivers were going pretty slow. Some were going like 20, 30. That’s pretty slow to be on the freeway,” Flenner said.

Tina Sampson of Middletown also drove despite Sunday’s snowy streets.

“They’re awful. My car is sliding all over the place. People are passing me. Driving through. I had to pull over because my headlights were covered up,” said Sampson.

After brushing off her car’s headlights she forged through for home, cautiously.

“The roads are just so bad and maybe they just have to catch up. maybe we got more than expected in a short amount of time but it’s pretty nasty out there. I’ll be glad to get home,” Sampson said.

2 NEWS called the Ohio State Highway Patrol Post in Clayton to see how many accidents authorities were called to. The dispatcher said there were too many to count as reports were still being called in after 10 o’clock Sunday night.
