Chief 11 (Kelley) arrived on scene to report 1 vehicle into ditch, no injuries. Due to poor weather conditions the hill was shut down. Otto Twp Station 9 Fire Police were dispatched to assist with traffic control at the top and Rescue 111 (Scrivo) and 11-70 (MacDonald) closed traffic in Derrick CIty. Personnel were assisted on scene by MA-1, Foster Township PD and Tuna Valley Towing. Roadway remained closed until PennDot arrived to plow and sand roadway. Also during this time there were calls of poor road conditions and disabled motorists on Olean Road, Red Rock Hill (Duke Center side), Looker Mountain Trail and Rew hill. Station 11 and Station 9 were on scene for approx 1.5 hrs.

Wonder what happen with Penn Dot's new technology getting equipment to those area's?
Warning for 1-4" of snow had been posted earlier in the week and watching the map on Friday afternoon it could be seen coming.

The people driving the roads new it was coming too. People need to slow down and be responsible.
