At 10:08 a.m., police responded to Presidential Way after a motorist lost control of his car because of the snowy conditions, swerved at a bend in the road, jumped the curb and struck a tree. The driver was not injured, but his car sustained significant damage to the front end. The vehicle was towed.

At 12:16 p.m., police responded to a two-car accident on Washington Street. A driver was exiting the Cummings Park parking lot. The traffic stopped for the driver, but one vehicle slid on the icy roadway and struck another vehicle that was stopped. There were no injuries. Police cited the driver pulling out of the lot for failing to yield the right of way.

At 5:14 p.m., police responded to a two-car accident at Burlington Street and Harrison Avenue. A driver was on Burlington Street when he lost control of the vehicle because of the snow, crossed into the oncoming travel lane and struck a snowplow. The truck tried to evade the sliding vehicle and backed up slowly, but the car hit the truck. There were no reported injuries.

At 6:26 p.m., a Park Street resident reported he was almost struck by a snowplow truck. The resident said he was snow blowing his driveway when a plow driver reportedly tried to hit him. The driver allegedly rolled down his window and swore at the resident. The resident gave police the truck’s license number. Police spoke to the plow driver who said the resident was standing in the streets and putting snow into the street. The driver told him to stop. The driver acknowledged that he yelled at him.
