Officers in Springfield told our News Center 7 crew that they handled at least 10 weather-related crashes Friday afternoon.

With temperatures falling roads could become even more slick.

“I took caution, went a little bit slower than usual, but other than that, it’s Ohio weather,” Chelsea Banion of South Charleston said.

Some police departments, such as West Milton, are urging drivers to stay off the road if possible.
