Virginia chose not to Pre-treat the Roads before the Snow Storm. Today, there were more than 300 accidents.

By 3:30 PM on January 3, 2022, the Virginia State Police released information that they had responded to more than 2,000 calls for service due to the conditions on the roads from the first major snowstorm to hit Virginia since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are currently no fatalities reported, and most of the crashes only had vehicular damage.

By mid-afternoon, traffic crashes totaled at 600, with equal numbers of disabled/stuck vehicles.

Virginia had chosen not to pretreat the roads prior to the snow storm, and as a result, when the heavy snowfall hit most of the state, the roads had piles of snow and ice on them, making driving highly dangerous.

It is expected that the temperatures tomorrow will be worse, especially considering icing on the roads, and many counties are choosing to remain closed into Tuesday.
