SHEBOYGAN COUNTY, WI (WHBL) - The Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department is warning motorists to be careful on roads this Friday as black ice is causing a number of vehicles to go off roadways. As of late morning, there have been 18 vehicles in the ditch, seven accidents, and one incident with injuries.
Lt. Mark Rupnik said snow from yesterday's snowfall is blowing onto treated roadways. This plus the ground temperatures from the cold winter this season is causing black ice to form. Motorists may see a wet roadway, but in reality it can cause sudden loss of control for a vehicle.
Rupnik said the area with the most incident has been on I-43 north of Sheboygan and roads between Plymouth and Sheboygan Falls.
