LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Icy roads are presenting a serious hazard to drivers Wednesday morning.

According to Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, multiple accidents and vehicles off the road are attributed to the icy roads.

“We have received reports that many roads in the county are icy and slippery conditions exist,” posted the Sheriff’s Office to Facebook. “Please use extra caution including reduced speeds as ice is often difficult to see until you are already spinning. Be assured that all of the highway departments have been notified and they are diligently working on the situation. Your part in safe travel is greatly appreciated. Leave early, take your time and have a great day!”

Fortunately, no reported crashes have resulted in serious injuries so far. A rollover accident with minor injuries caused Deputies to close Bronson Hill Road in Livonia in the area of South Lima Road until further notice.

According to our news partners News10NBC, temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for the rest of the week, with a slight drop in temperature on Saturday. Monday Jan. 2 should see highs around 40 degrees.
