Icy highways cause series of road closures, minor accidents
Icy highways in central and western Massachusetts caused a series of minor car accidents and road closures this morning, according to officials. “There isn’t anything major, just icy roads that I think are taking people by surprise,” said State Police Trooper Reed Bagley. The accidents were mostly “typical fender benders,” Bagley said. Icy sections of Route 2 have been closed and re-opened in Florida, Savoy, and Templeton, according to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
