Snowfall light, but traffic accidents pile up

At least 27 cars slid into ditches, went into medians or collided with utility poles after a little more than an inch of snow fell Friday morning.

About 1.2 inches of snow fell around Johnson County starting at 5:43 a.m., and local police stayed busy going from one accident to the next between 8 a.m. and noon.

On Interstate 65, the Indiana State Police had to send out more troopers to handle multiple accidents around the Whiteland Road and Main Street exits.
