Storm wreaks havoc on CK roads

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.
