Black ice creating havoc on Mission roads

Mission RCMP are warning the public to slow down after multiple incidents on area roads this morning.

Black ice is a major concern and has contributed to several accidents. Among the collisions was a four-vehicle accident on Highway 7 at Nelson Street.

Other accidents have been reported throughout town, with vehicles unable to stop.

RCMP Const. James Mason is urging the public to slow down, especially when there are emergency crews working. He said many vehicles passed the Highway 7 crash scene at the speed limit, which is worrying for those working nearby.

Mason said conditions grow worse the further east one travels, with the Hatzic area and beyond particularly icy.
