Freezing Fog & Icy Roads Cause of Prosser MVA’s
It's already begun. On Sunday, there were several accidents on I-82 in the Prosser area. Freezing fog and low visibility caused slick road conditions, which caught drivers off-guard.
West Benton Fire Rescue responded to an injury accident on the roadway, just after 5:30 am. The road was shut down for a time, as one victim in the original accident was transported to a local hospital.
I-82 was slippery, causing several additional accidents. Responding vehicles from West Benton Fire Rescue were struck in the incidents.
