Winter weather continues to take its toll

GUILFORD – On Monday, emergency crews responded to a dozen different accidents, many caused by an early morning snow fall.

Chenango County Emergency Management A. Wesley Jones reported that crews responded to 12 accident scenes in the area yesterday.



He said on average about 1 to 3 inches fell across the county, depending on elevation and location. More is expected today.

“Generally it wasn’t too bad, but whenever there’s a snow fall, we tend to see a higher number of motor vehicle related accidents due to weather conditions,” he said.

Jones estimated on average emergency officials receive between five to ten reports of accidents on any given day, most of them minor property damage accidents.
