From Harford County government:
The Harford County Department of Emergency Services is reporting icy on several county and state roads throughout Harford County. Officials urge motorist to exercise extreme caution when driving due to icy roads.
Several accidents were reported Sunday evening in Harford County attributed to icy roads and hazardous driving conditions. Among roads where icing has been identified as a problem include the following:
– The 1700 block of Singer Road in Abingdon
– Red Pump Road and St. Francis near Bel Air
– The 3600 block of Old Level Road in the community of Level
– Several area on MD Rt. 543, South Fountain Green Road near Bel Air
– Northbound on U.S. Rt. 1 – the Bel Air Bypass near Bel Air
Harford County Department of Public Works, Division of Highways is deploying personnel and equipment to begin salting county roads.
The Harford County 911 Center has reported several of the accidents occurred on MD Rt. 543. Maryland State Police and Harford County Sheriff’s Office personnel are investigating the reported accidents.
“Melting snow left many roads wet which then iced over as temperatures in the county fell below freezing Sunday”, said Harford County Emergency Manager Rick Ayers. “The result of the subfreezing temperatures has left many roads and bridges covered with a thin layer of ice, which ultimately caused a number of accidents,” Ayers remarked.
