Evening snow leads to slippery roads, crashes throughout Rochester region

Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Seasonal snowfall left roadways slick and likely contributed to a number of crashes in and around Rochester Wednesday evening.

News 8 crews found emergency crews on the scene of a crash along North Goodman Street shortly after 7:00 p.m. Drivers we spoke with at a nearby gas station said they’d passed other crashes on their way into the city.

“It’s slippery and it’s really wet,” Laura Morelock said. “Everybody’s just driving really cautiously, which is really great. I saw a couple of accidents out in Fairport off the roads, but it wasn’t too bad. If you’re driving cautiously you’ll be fine.”

Local artist John Arthurs says tonight it was great to see the beautiful snow so close to Christmas… but it’s dangerous on the roadways. “I wish everyone to be safe, and be careful because it’s no joke. We all have to be safe. We all want to be with our families,” Arthurs said.
