  • Tri-State battles second round of winter weatherTri-State battles second round of winter weather

    Drivers are dealing with another round of winter weather.  “Right now, the main highways are snow covered,” said Sgt. Todd Ringle of Indiana State Police.  “INDOT has been out for quite some time.  They are doing as good of a job as possible.  But anytime it’s still snowing, it’s very difficult to keep up.” “We went into a full call out of trucks,” added Jason Tiller of INDOT.  “So about 130 to 140 trucks, or pretty much every available driver.”     The snow hit Evansville towards the tail end of the morning commute.  Police say they've had several slide-offs and it's because people are driving too fast.  “Hopefully, the snow will end before the afternoon commute,” Sgt. Ringle said.  “Right now, if you’re out, you need to slow down and brake early.” Before you take off, make sure the snow is clear from your windows and lights.  “And then you want to make sure you have a winter survival kit in your car,” Sgt. Ringle reminded drivers. “You want to make sure you have the means to keep yourself and your passengers warm for an extended period of time.” A travel warning was issued for Gibson County on Monday morning.  To keep track of the road conditions, you can download the INDOT app.  It's free on Android or Apple devices. You can also visit the INDOT website.

  • Two teens avoid serious injury when jeep overturnsTwo teens avoid serious injury when jeep overturns

    Two teenagers escape serious injury after their Jeep overturns in Daviess County, Indiana.  The crash was reported around 11 p.m. Sunday near County Road 1100 East and County Road 1675 North. Police say 16-year-old Ethan Malone was traveling down a steep hill.  The Jeep traveled off the east side of the road and became stuck in a small ditch.  A passenger in the Jeep, 17-year-old Ian Bird, attempted to push the vehicle out of the ditch while Malone steered.  Police say they were able to get the Jeep out of the ditch.  However, due to icy conditions, the vehicle began to slide out of control down the hill.  The Jeep hit a much larger embankment and overturned.  Troopers say Malone was trapped in the vehicle for a short time.  But he was able to free himself and crawl out of the wreckage.  Malone was transported to Daviess County Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  Police say Bird was treated at the scene for an abrasion on his hand.

    Numerous businesses and most schools closed early or didn't even open for the day as a long-anticipated winter storm dumped first rain, then freezing rain then sleet on the TriState before changing to snow which came down in billows for hours.  Ohio County Kentucky declared a state of emergency, and Evansville Regional Airport cancelled all flights after a valient battle against the elements.  Hundreds of plows and salt trucks turned to before the sun came up Friday morning, and despite numerous slide-offs and semi jack-knifings, traffic continued to run fairly smoothly -- greatly reduced by those who chose to stay home rather than brave the winter weather.  Roads still remain snow covered with ice underneath as of COB Friday.

  • 2017 Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights—second best ever2017 Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights—second best ever

    Due to hazardous weather conditions, volunteers are postponing the take-down of Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights at Garvin Park.  But Easter Seals made an exciting announcement on Friday.  The 24th annual light show raised approximately $160,000 between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.  That meant 2017 was the second best-year financially.  Only the 2009 show raised more ($160,845).  The proceeds will help underwrite as many as 3,333 therapy sessions for local children and adults with disabilities, who couldn’t otherwise afford the services.  “We are just thrilled and very grateful, because funding life-changing therapy—giving the gift of a brighter future—is what Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights is all about,” said Pam Kirk, Director of Marketing and Community Relations.  This year’s total included $18,076.29 in extra donations from visitors, above and beyond their admission fees.  That was the largest amount of extra donations received in a single year at the event. A total of 12,570 vehicles (including horse-drawn carriages) drove through this year’s display.  “We were very fortunate to have good weather for most of the event, and that really helped attendance,” Kirk said. “Also, more of the displays were transformed with LED lights this year, and the park just looked beautiful, thanks to all the generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers.” In addition to those driving through the event, several hundred people participated in a 5K run and 1-mile walk through the light show on November 29. The light displays will be dismantled next Saturday by volunteers from Teamsters Local 215, IBEW Local 16, NECA and Electrical JATC.

    A Winter Storm Warning continues for the entire Tri-State until 9 p.m. Friday.  A mix of freezing rain and sleet has led to treacherous driving conditions.  “All of the roadways are covered with snow and ice,” said Sgt. Todd Ringle.  “I’ve been out since 5 a.m.  My average speed is 35 miles per hour.  I think the biggest challenge this morning is going to be the ice.” The National Weather Service in Paducah had called for 1 to 3 inches of accumulation in Evansville.  The freezing rain was expected to become all snow after 1 p.m.  To borrow a phrase from INDOT: Don’t Crowd the Plow.  “They’ve asked for people to please use caution when they are approaching a snow plow,” said Sheriff Dave Wedding.  “They’ve had a couple of near-misses this morning.  People would crowd the center line as they were coming the opposite way in their large trucks.  Please yield to the snow plows.”     There were several slide-offs reported on I-69 and U.S. 41.  But three truck fires were the major issue during the morning commute.  Click here for a complete list of cancelations.
