Baltimore County roads still slick due to winter storm, over 400 crashes reported statewide

NOTTINGHAM, MD—The precipitation has ended, but lingering wet roads and chilly temperatures are resulting in slick roads.

Even main arteries such as E. Joppa Road remained slippery and ice-covered in many spots as of 10 a.m. on Thursday morning.

Motorists are urged to use caution and assume that any surfaces that appear wet may be icy.

From 9 a.m. on Wednesday to 9 a.m. on Thursday, Maryland State Police responded to 1,340 calls for service, which included 403 crashes, 225 disabled/unattended vehicles, and 19 roadside hazards (i.e. downed trees, wires).

In the Nottingham/White Marsh area, officers responded to approximately 18 vehicle-related crashed on Wednesday and into Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service says temperatures should rise above freezing by Thursday afternoon, reducing the risk of icy roads.
