Less car crashes this snowstorm attributed to more awareness

Posted by: Morning Newsroom

Authorities out on the roads Thursday evening into Friday morning say for the most part, drivers did their part to stay off the roads.

The Nebraska State Patrol says on the interstate, the roads are all covered and snow packed  They say the bad road conditions caused several accidents throughout the night.

Lincoln police tell us they responded to 35 accidents in a 24–hour period, which is much improved from January's last snow storm that hit the Lincoln area which brought in more than 80 car wrecks in the city.
