Icy Roads The Cause Of 2 Early Morning Accidents On Dallas Hollow Road

Friday, November 16, 2018

Icy roads were to blame for two accidents Friday morning on Dallas Hollow Road.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded around 7:20 a.m. to two separate vehicle accidents on Dallas Hollow Road near Short Leaf Lane.

During the night, due to below freezing temperatures, water on the roadway had turned to ice and was the cause of both accidents.

The first accident occurred when a female driver was travelling south on Dallas Hollow Road when she hit the ice and lost control of her vehicle.

The vehicle hit the guard rail on the right side of the road and then went back onto the roadway, across the double yellow line, and ended up in the ditch on the northbound lane.

The driver of the first vehicle sustained what appear to be minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for medical review. HCEMS personnel assisted the driver with exiting her vehicle.

Just after the first accident, a second accident occurred when another vehicle hit the same patch of ice and also wrecked, leaving a truck on its top.

The driver in the second accident did not appear to sustain any injuries.
