Icy roads also contributed to an
accident in Bedford County.

It happened around two o'clock on
Route 24 just up the road from Staunton
River High School.

State Police say the driver of the
Grand-Am overcorrected, crossed the
median, and then hit an S-U-V head on.

Both vehicles went down an
embankment.

No serious injuries reported.

Route 24 was closed in both
directions for nearly an hour and a
half while the accident was cleared up.

came down early this morning.

By mid-morning, the precipitation
had turned into freezing rain and sleet

Fallen trees and branches have
