Just past the curve, near Bordeaux Road, a gold sedan had lost control in the ice, and came to a stop in a nearby bean field.
Just past the next gradual curve, were 3 vehicles, all involved or partially involved, in another mishap .
It started as a gray, westbound Mitsubishi lost control in the ice. The driver avoided colliding with an eastbound Chevy pick up, but the Chevy truck swerved and ended up in the ditch.
The Mitsubishi then struck an oncoming, white Volkswagen Jetta, which was being driven by the wife of the Chevy driver. sending both vehicles spinning into the ditch area.
Drew County Sheriff’s deputies worked the accident(s). No one was reportedly injured, however an ambulance resonded to check out one of the drivers.
