Icy roads, accidents in Vt.

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Police in Vermont are urging drivers to proceed with caution as many local roads are slippery from freezing rain overnight.

Police say state and local road crews are treating the roads, but people still need to drive slowly.

State police say the areas of Exit 17 to Exit 18 northbound on Interstate 91 have large pockets of water covering the road. In Colchester, told drivers to avoid an intersection where the pavement was washed out due to weather conditions.

In Springfield, the Interstate 91 northbound ramp at Exit 7 closed temporarily after a tractor trailer crash at about 4:30 a.m. Monday. Another tractor trailer accident closed a lane of traffic on northbound I-91 in Westminster.

Police reported numerous vehicles went off Route 30 in Pawlet and Route 31 in Poultney on Sunday night. The roads were covered in ice. Some vehicles were stranded until crews could apply salt to the roads.

One driver in the Jericho area lost control of her vehicle and spun into a fallen tree.
