(St. Joseph County, IN) - Police advise motorists to watch out for icy bridge decks as two vehicles slid off bridges on the Indiana Toll Road yesterday in St. Joseph County.
After a car lost control, a Fed Ex driver slamming on the brakes wound up with his trailer dangling over the side of the bridge. Later, a van went over a bridge guard rail just a few miles away from that accident near South Bend.
No serious injuries were reported from any of the accidents, but travel restrictions were in effect for several hours on the Toll Road to allow for the trailer to be removed from the bridge.
Police said it doesn’t take much for ice to build up on bridges, even with just a light dusting of snow.
