The Ohio State Highway Patrol is warning drivers about the dangers of driving in winter weather and is offering some tips on what drivers should do in the event of a vehicle break down or a crash.
From December 2012 through March 2013, 18,779 crashes occurred on snow, ice or slush covered roadways killing 42 people and injuring 5,253. Speed-related factors were reported as a cause in 56 percent of these crashes.
In the event of inclement weather, the patrol is urging motorists to allow extra time to get to their destination, maintain a safe distance between their vehicle and the traffic ahead, pay close attention to bridges and overpasses - as they are often the first to freeze over -and to drive slowly, as everything including accelerating, turning and braking, take longer on snow-covered roadways.

A Deshler man was sentenced Friday to community control on an attempted arson charge stemming from an incident at a North Baltimore church.
Jeremiah Houk, 32, appeared in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Alan Mayberry.
Houk was initially indicted on one count of arson and one count of breaking and entering following the Aug. 26 incident at the Praise Chapel, located at 500 W. Broadway St.
Houk had reportedly thrown "a flammable cocktail intentionally to set fire" to the site.
As part of a plea agreement, the breaking and entering count was dropped and the arson count was amended to attempted arson.
