Icy roads keep state police busy

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Rhode Island State Police say they responded to 26 accidents that happened on icy roads Monday night during a three-hour span.

Captain Jamie Pereira says most of the accidents happened between Pawtucket and Providence,starting at around 8:30pm.

"It just became very icy and slick causing most of the vehicles to spin out, hit a barrier, guard rail, or actually had a couple of rollovers as well," says Pereira.

The calls stopped at around 11:30pm, he says, once crew started treating the roads. There were few injuries, none major.
