Slick roads lead to morning accidents

TOLEDO -- Low temperatures early Sunday morning, coupled with freezing rain, are leading to dangerous driving conditions across Northwest Ohio.

A single vehicle crash on Kemper near Williamsdale in South Toledo. It happened around 3:30 this morning. Police tell us the driver had turned off of Williamsdale onto Kemper when he lost control on a patch of black ice. The car left the roadway, crashing into a tree. The driver was taken to the hospital with what are thought to be minor injuries.

A few hours earlier, 2 cars were involved in a crash on South Reynolds Road, near the intersection with Yorkshire. That's in South Toledo as well. Police say both of the cars involved were heading south on Reynolds when the SUV in the far right-hand lane made a left-hand turn right into the path of the other car. That SUV was then t-boned by the car and rescue crews had to use the Jaws of Life to extract the driver of one of the cars. Both drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
