Dozens of Accidents Reported in South Brunswick During Storm

Motorists urged to stay off the roads Sunday evening.

The blast of winter weather that hit the area Sunday has already caused over a dozen motor vehicle accidents on South Brunswick roadways.

South Brunswick Police have reported numerous incidents of cars leaving the roadway as a result of the slippery driving conditions throughout the day. Accidents have occurred on several different township roadways, including Route 130, Henderson Road, Sand Hills Road and Route 1.

"A lot of people went out and didn't anticipate these conditions," said South Brunswick police spokesman Lt. Jim Ryan. "Though there wasn't a lot of accumulation, the driving conditions are extremely hazardous." 

Police are urging motorists to stay off the roads if possible Sunday evening, as the Department of Public Works is currently active treating the slippery roadways.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 1 a.m. on Monday. The current forecast calls for a mix of rain, sleet and snow tonight and rain and sleet in the later hours before shifting to rain overnight. There could be close to half an inch of accumulation tonight.

By Monday the snow should all clear but it will likely be a rainy day with close to half an inch possible with high temperature near 50 degrees.
