Kanawha County dispatchers received reports of 107 motor vehicle crashes from midnight Tuesday through 3 p.m. Wednesday, said Cpl. Brian Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office.
Of those, 38 were in the Charleston city limits and 69 were in unincorporated areas, primarily patrolled by Kanawha County deputies.
Of the 107 crashes, 31 were reported to have resulted in injuries.
Snow and ice were compounded by bitter cold temperatures, causing dangerous road conditions, Humphreys said."The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office asks drivers to be careful while operating a motor vehicle at all times, and use even more caution during inclement weather," he said. "Please clear windshields and windows for visibility; but also clean off the hood, roof, and other surfaces so snow and ice from your car doesn't interfere with the visibility of other drivers while traveling. And every occupant needs to wear a seatbelt or be secured in a child safety seat."
