Accidents Few With Precipitation; Games Rescheduled

January 16th, 2013 - By Charles Choate

Sleet, snow and freezing rain Tuesday afternoon forced the cancellation of several schools in the area today, and caused the postponement of most high school basketball games last night.

But according to law enforcement officials in the Ken-Tenn area, motor vehicle accidents, due to the slippery road conditions, were minimal.

Obion County Sheriff Jerry Vastbinder said there were a few cars that slipped off the roadway into ditches, but no serious accidents were investigated.

The Sheriff did say that Tennessee Highway Patrol worked a truck rollover near Kenton, due to the slick roadways, but no one was injured.

Fulton County Sheriff Bobby Hopper said his department did not receive any calls concerning accidents.

Obion County Emergency Management Director Danny Jowers said that side roads, and some other county roads, were still covered with the frozen precipitation and hazardous to drive on, but afternoon tempewratures should result in melting.

As far as basketball, the Union City at Lake County game has been moved to February 4th, with Bradford at Greenfield now scheduled for Thursday night.

Westview at Dyersburg has been rescheduled for Monday, January 28th and the Dresden at Huntingdon game will be played Saturday night.

Keith Frazier, at South Fulton High School, said there are two dates being looked at to play their game against Trenton Peabody, with a decision likely made tomorrow.

And so far, we have not heard when the Haywood County at Obion County Central game will be made up.
