OTTUMWA, Iowa —
Slippery conditions sent several drivers off the road Friday.
Ottumwa police officers had responded to at least five crashes by noon.
Around 8 a.m. Friday, crews were called to a single-vehicle crash at the 1000 block of North Jefferson Street.
Officers on scene said the driver of a Dodge Stratus swerved to avoid another vehicle and struck a utility poll. As a result, cable service was down for at least one household nearby.
The driver refused medical treatment, and no citations were issued.
