The Chatham-Kent police were extremely busy yesterday due to the winter snowstorm that blasted our community.
In the past 24 hours, CKPS received:
- 23 calls of abandoned vehicles
- 15 motor vehicle collisions
- 46 motor vehicle collisions were deferred to the Collision Reporting Centre (CRC)
- 39 police assistance calls on stranded motorists
- seven towed vehicles from ditches and snowbanks
The Chatham-Kent Police Service are reminding all motorists that although visibility is clear today, the roads remain snow-covered and very icy. Drivers are urged to slow down and use caution around abandoned vehicles as crews attempt to remove them.
