Troy McLeod with the roads department says crashes like this serve as a reminder to be careful on the roads.

“Be further back from other vehicles, giving yourself space to stop regardless of whether the road is plowed or not.”

He adds if you’re driving, make sure you clear your vehicle of any snow to prevent poor visibility for yourself and other drivers.
