Messy morning commute

Capital News 9, December 5th 2006


The roads have cleared up quite a bit, but many of us had our first messy drive to work of the season after waking up to some snowfall.

We've gotten off easy over the past few weeks, but now the cold weather is catching up with us. And it made for a frustrating ride with some accidents and quite a few delays. 

Firefighters at the scene said weather could have been played a role in an accident in Glenville. 

One car lost control and hit another on Route 50, then went off the road and slammed into a McDonald's. 

Emergency crews had to extricate the driver who suffered minor injuries. The building doesn't appear to have any major damage.
