Sudden Slide Sunday With Salt Spread In Layers

What began as snow over the weekend  turned to water and then froze again.   That produced some major headaches for drivers.

Around six last night, a freezing drizzle sent the salt trucks out again after police reported numerous cars and trucks sliding on new ice.

In Chesterfield a car slid off a road and hit a house. Elsewhere in west county, an ambulance slid off the road. No one was seriously injured.

A number of rural schools, in both Missouri and Illinois plan to close today due to the weather and, in Mt. Olive, Illinois, teachers say they’ll strike today for want of a contract. The Mt. Olive school board plans a meeting tonight.
