Slick Roads Cause Dozens of Accidents in Kanawha County

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Emergency crews had a busy Monday morning as dozens of accidents were reported in and around the Kanawha Valley.

Freezing rain and snow caused some slick road conditions for drivers trying to get to work and school. Most of the accidents were reported between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Monday.

An accident along Interstate 64 near Dunbar closed down the westbound lanes for nearly an hour, but the road has since reopened.

In Charleston, a driver was heading down Hickory Road when he went over an embankment and hit a storage building near a house. The storage building was damaged, but no one was hurt.
