TSPN has received reports of accidents over the weekend, two of which involved ice.  Both ice-related accidents occurred on Highway 88. Last Friday afternoon, two vehicles collided near the Carson Spur after a 2003 Toyota hit an ice patch and lost control. Saturday evening a patch of black ice caused the driver of a 1999 Acura to lose control and swerve off the road. The CHP reports only minor injuries to the passenger after the vehicle collided into a snow bank. The CHP advises Amador residents to slow down in icy conditions. Snow and ice make stopping distances much longer, requiring a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead. Bridge decks and shady spots can be icy when other areas are not.
