KSAL StaffDecember 8, 2013

Slick roads cause numerous crashes Sunday, including one involving a Salina fire truck.

A fresh round of snow and drizzle has slickened roads across parts of Kansas and Missouri.

The wintry precipitation began falling Saturday and continued into Sunday. In Missouri, 1 inch fell at Kansas City International Airport and 3 to 4 inches in the northwest part of the state. North-central and northeast Missouri had received about half an inch by around noon.

There was just a light dusting in parts of southern Missouri already digging out from 6 to 12 inches of snow.

The hardest-hit part of Kansas was the north-central section of the state, where 6-inch accumulations were recorded. Two inches fell in the northwest and 2 to 4 inches in the state’s far northeast section. Light snow and freezing drizzle were reported in south-central, southeast and central Kansas.

Conditions in the Salina area Sunday morning prompted police to enact their Emergency Accident Reporting Plan after their were numerous crashes.

One crash involved a Salina fire truck. The truck was parked as its crew worked an accident on a slick interstate highway. A tractor-trailer truck slid into the fire truck. One firefighter in the truck suffered non-life threatening injuries.
