Extra care needed on wet roads
Due to those slick, icy roads, Ruston police, Lincoln Parish deputies and state troopers worked numerous minor accidents throughout the parish.
All total, law enforcement workers in the parish worked roughly 30 wrecks due to the bad driving conditions brought on by the weather.
While the temperatures for the rest of the week, beginning today, are forecast as slightly more spring-like, the rain is not leaving. It will remain in the area until the weekend. Although the temperature hike means no more freezing rain, driving in wet conditions is still less than ideal.
