SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The mayor of South Bend asked residents to stay off the streets as strong winds made driving and snow plowing hazardous on Sunday.
Wind gusts topping 30 mph throughout the day made visibility for driving nearly zero at times. South Bend officials pulled snow blows from one street after trucks narrowly missed head-on crashes with vehicles that had crossed the centerline in the whiteout conditions.
State police reported numerous slide-offs and crashes on the
Indiana Toll Road in the South Bend area.
The whiteouts prompted state police officials to warn of hazardous driving conditions in areas north of U.S. 20 in LaGrange and Steuben counties.
