Officials: Take care while driving on slick roads

Ada —  

State officials warned drivers to be careful on the roads Wednesday, one day after a Christmas storm brought snow and ice to Ada.

Slick and hazardous conditions were reported shortly before noon on all Pontotoc County roads, and officials strongly discouraged people from traveling, according to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. Other southeast Oklahoma highways, including I-35 from the Oklahoma/Texas border to mile marker 81, were slick and hazardous as temperatures remained below freezing.

There were no traffic collisions within the city limits from midnight Christmas Day through late Wednesday morning, said assistant Ada Police Chief Jeff Crosby.

“We’ve been real lucky,” he said.

Pontotoc County Sheriff John Christian was out of the office Wednesday afternoon.

Troop F of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported several accidents in the area, but none of them involved injuries. Specific numbers were not available as of press time.
