SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE (Smokey Barn News) – As Robertson County waits for warmer temperatures crews are hard at work clearing the roadways.
The single digit temps overnight have allowed even salted roads to solidify. The situation has made roadways treacherous, even for trained professionals. This morning around 11 am a TDOT plow slid off the roadway and overturned on Betts Rd just outside of Greenbrier. MAP According to District Chief, Mike Bauer with the White House Community Volunteer Fire Department, the driver was not injured.
Reports are the same all over Robertson County, the roads are covered in ice. With more snow on the way, it is likely to get worse before it gets better.
