There have been a steady stream of accidents all day on the scanner. Even though the dusting of snow doesn't look like much, it is proving to be quite slippery. There have been numerous accidents on the freeway, a car plowed into a fence this morning at 32nd and Pierce and earlier someone slipped and fell on the ice at Fourth and Bowdish and broke a kneecap. Everyone use extra caution out there.
