Several car accidents occurred in Marathon County on Friday, November 8 due to the slippery roads caused by man-made snow, the Wausau Daily Herald reported.
Wausau Police Lt. Mike Juedes stated that several accidents occurred before 6 a.m. when snow started to pile up on Grand Avenue not far from Lake View Drive. According to a Green Bay National Weather Service spokesperson, the snowfall in Wausau was caused by the man-made snow from the Granite Peak Ski Area. There were no reported injuries from the crashes but former Marathon County Highway Committee member Jim Rosenberg said a better approach is needed to prevent road casualties.
The Department of Public Works salted the icy roads to make them safer for motorists.
Granite Peak Ski general manager Vicki Baumann, who receives complaints every year from irritated motorists, said they always coordinate with the Department of Transportation whenever they make snow.
Although no one was reportedly injured in the crashes, many motorists suffer annually from injuries due to the negligence of others.
