opp-snow-fullSouth Bruce County – The second winter storm of the season surprised a number of motorists. South Bruce OPP officers were kept busy dealing with a high number of motor vehicle collisions and stranded vehicles that were blocking, or partially blocking, the road and impeding the road crews' efforts to clear the snow.

Between 3:30 pm on November 17, 2014 and 7:00 am on November 19, 2014, the South Bruce OPP received 45 reports involving a collision or stranded vehicle. A number of these incidents involved multiple vehicles, but there was just minor injuries reported at one of the scenes.

"I'm pleased that no one has been seriously hurt, at the same time, I find myself wondering why so many vehicles have been caught in the storm. I urge all residents of Southern Bruce County to frequently check road and weather reports this time of year before getting into a vehicle and monitor local radio stations for updates. I don't want to see anyone else at risk travelling through a storm; including first responders that are put in harm's way trying to locate stranded vehicles" – Acting Inspector Wayne Thompson, Detachment Commander, South Bruce OPP.
