Motorists in the London area faced “awful” conditions Wednesday as a Texas low moved into Ontario bringing abundant snowfall.
Snow fell throughout the morning hours before intensifying in the afternoon, limiting visibility and traction.
The timing of the snowfall created less-than-ideal conditions for commuters getting to and from work. The afternoon bluster, in particular, created slowdowns in the city and along Highway 401.
Ontario Provincial Police said there were several collisions during the morning commute in Middlesex County, with vehicles going into ditches and off the roadway. No injuries were reported from the morning incidents.
“In all the collisions this morning there were no personal injuries, just property damage related,” said Const. Jeff Hare.
