The cold weather is creating slippery road conditions and keeping Greater Sudbury Police Service, EMS and firefighters busy.
Police shut down the westbound lanes on The Kingsway around 10:30 a.m. following a three-vehilce crash. EMS, fire and police responded.
An eastbound vehicle lost control and crossed the westbound lanes, hitting two other vehicles.
One of the drivers had to be extracted. One person was taken to Health Sciences North with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of a vehicle wasn't injured when it flipped over on Barrydowne Road.
Police responded to the incident around 7:40 a.m. near Future Shop. Traffic was slow moving, said Greater Sudbury Police Service.
Shortly after that incident, a four-vehicle collision happened on Paris Street just after 8 a.m., said police. There were no injuries.
All drivers have been requested to attend the collision reporting centre.
The cold weather creates slippery conditions and it is often deceiving because the roads may appear bare and dry when there is actually a thin layer of ice on the surface, said police.
-Drivers are urged to give themselves a little more time to get to their destination;
-Allow more space between your vehicle and the one in front of you;
-All your vehicle windows / mirrors must be clear of snow and frost;
-Concentrate on driving — everything else can wait.
