Deputy David Wight responded to the scene of a single-vehicle accident on North Palermo Road in Palermo, where an operator was pulled from the roadway by slushy conditions. The driver of a 2008 Ford reportedly told Wight that he was traveling south when a propane or oil truck approached in the opposite lane, with one wheel over the centerline. The driver said they moved over to the far right while staying in their lane, but the vehicle was pulled off the road by slush. The vehicle, which sustained functional damage, then struck trees. The operator reportedly admitted he was traveling too quickly for the conditions. They were uninjured in the crash.
