Thin layer of snow, ice turns Calgary roads treacherous

Share Adjust Comment Print

It isn’t a lot of snow but accompanied with a layer of ice in some spots, it is enough to make travel on some Calgary roads both slow and hazardous this morning.

From 5 p.m. yesterday to 5 a.m. today, Calgary police report 52 accidents on area roads, nine involved injuries and one of those proved to be deadly.  

EMS confirms a woman in her 40s was pronounced dead at Foothills Hospital following a collision between her vehicle and a semi-truck around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday night. Her identity was not released, 

Calgary police shut down northbound Deerfoot Tr. between Stoney Tr. and Country Hills Blvd. for nearly five hours as they investigated the incident.

Calgary police say the number of accidents tailed off as the evening progressed, once city roads crews were able to cover more territory.

But getting to work is certainly not an easy, or quick, task for many this morning as the latest tweets from the city’s Transportation department show.
