HOWLAND – Police said slick conditions are to blame for a crash in Howland Sunday.
A car drove off the road into the woods on North Howland Road Sunday afternoon. No one in the car was hurt in the accident.
Officials said the icy conditions were caused by a lack of salt on the road. They also said it is important to take it easy on the roads, even when there is no active snow.
Howland Fire Captain Eric St. Cyr said “The weather’s changed. Temperatures have dropped. There’s going to be a lot of black ice today. And there’s going to be a lot that’s going to happen unless you slow down.”
Road access was restricted before being re-opened shortly after.
