Students in three area schools districts got an extra day of holiday vacation today as slick roads caused by sub-freezing temperatures and light snow forced the cancellation of classes in the Danville, Boyle County and Casey County school districts.
Schools in the other four area districts were scheduled to be off today.
Meanwhile, spokesmen for city police and county sheriff departments in Boyle, Casey, Garrard, Lincoln and Mercer counties this morning said they had no reports of weather-related, injury accidents.
However, a spokesman for the Kentucky State Police Post at Richmond said troopers investigated several weather-related, minor accidents Tuesday in Garrard and Lincoln counties. He said none were reported in Boyle and Mercer counties. A dispatcher at the Columbia state police post said no accidents were reported in Casey County.
"Some (of the accidents) in Garrard and Lincoln may have involved very minor injuries, but none of the parties was hospitalized," said Chris Lanham, the Richmond post spokesman. "Things were much worse in other parts of the post area, especially in eastern and southern central Kentucky."
