Slick roads across Central Pennsylvania during the evening commute have caused traffic and accidents across the region.

As of 5:50 p.m., York County was reporting 19 incidents, Lebanon County reporting 11 and Lancaster County reporting 19. Most of these incidents were minor; however there was a head-on collision involving two vehicles on Route 14 North near mile marker 23. 

State Route 743 South is closed at McCorkel Road near Lancaster County due to weather and disabled vehicles on roadway.

Traffic cameras and maps also show slowing along 22/322 North just north of Harrisburg as well as Interstate 81 south just past the Interstate 581.

Two incidents in the Ephrata area involving utility poles were reported. In one instance a driver slid at a curve in the roadway in the 600 Block of Springville Road in Ephrata Township. He struck a utility pole, and his vehicle had to be towed from the scene. The driver was not injured.

Then on Parkview Heights Road a driver slid and was trapped by a utility pole against the driver's side door. Rescue from Lincoln and Pioneer Fire Companies freed the driver, who was then taken to Lancaster General Hospital with unknown injuries.
