Beverly Cantrell - February 3, 2022 6:45 pm

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) reports they have responded to several calls since Wednesday.

So far for this winter storm, OHP has worked the following from 12:00 am Wednesday through 2:00 pm Thursday.
Abandoned vehicles – 89
Fatality collisions – 2
Injury collisions – 49
Motorist assists – 331
Non-injury collisions – 303

Light to moderate snow continues to cover much of the state as another band precipitation moves through the region and very cold temperatures persist. Oklahoma Department of Transportation and Oklahoma Turnpike Authority crews continue treating and clearing highways, interstates and all turnpikes statewide around-the-clock to clear roadway surfaces.

Highways, interstates and turnpikes remain slick and hazardous in most of the state, however Oklahoma Department of Transportation and Oklahoma Turnpike Authority crews have made good progress in some areas. Motorists should be aware of deteriorating conditions into the evening and overnight hours as another round of snow moves across the region.

Travel in most parts of Oklahoma is still strongly discouraged. Most counties remain affected by low temperatures and snow-packed highways. Crews continue road clearing operations; however, drivers must be prepared for slick and snow-packed routes.
