Stranded cars and people kept the La Salle County Sheriff’s Department busy

Posted by wlpo on January 7, 2014

There’s a reason why the police will tell you to stay home if you don’t need to be traveling during a winter storm.  More than 50 cars and trucks in La Salle County ended up in ditches or stuck on snow-covered roads during the recent storm.

The La Salle County Sheriff’s office says deputies rescued people stranded with their cars.  Particularly bad roads were Routes 34, 52, 71, 23 and 170.  People were also stranded on county and township roads. 

If you’re traveling during cold weather wear warm clothing and have your cell phone charged in case of an emergency.
