Wet roads lead to Belmont crashes
October 30, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Light morning rain and slick roads led to a pair of crashes on Ralston Avenue in Belmont Tuesday, a police spokesman said.

The first accident occurred just east of Hiller Street at 7:55 a.m., when a Volvo station wagon lost traction on the wet road and crashed into trees on the south side of Ralston Avenue, Belmont police Capt. Pat Halleran said.

The driver was not injured, and a portion of the roadway was closed for about 20 minutes while the vehicle was towed.

A chain-reaction crash involving four vehicles then occurred just west of Hallmark Drive at 8 a.m., when Lexus rear-ended a Ford sedan and caused two more vehicles to move forward and hit the cars in front of them, Halleran said.

No one was seriously injured, he said. The driver of one of the cars complained of neck pain but refused medical attention, he said.

Belmont police are reminding residents that driving conditions are changing with the arrival of cold, wet weather, and recommended that drivers check their windshield wipers and headlights to make sure they’re in good condition.

Also, drivers should slow down and allow more braking distance when roads are slick, police said.
