Police attended dozens of accidents on Tuesday morning after black ice created dangerous road conditions.



Police attended 34 collisions from 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and are continuing to respond to accidents.

Black ice and slippery road conditions have led to many single vehicle accidents and multi-vehicle accidents throughout Abbotsford.

Staff Sgt. Rick Stewart said police are urging motorists to slow down and keep space between vehicles.

He said that most of the accidents have been minor, but some have sent people to hospital with injuries.

Stewart said that emergency resources are stretched thin in order to deal with all of the accidents, so they are encouraging all drivers to use extra caution.
