EAST ST. LOUIS, Mo. – While residents won’t have to necessarily deal with snow on Thursday , freezing temperatures overnight caused black ice in some areas.
Officers responded to an accident in Centerville just after 2:00 a.m. on Old Missouri Avenue Highway 157 at Highway 13.
According to authorites, the driver hit a patch of ice which caused her car to crash into a pole.
She was taken to a local hospital.
No word on her condition.
Drivers are being urged to slow down, leave room between cars, do not brake suddenly and do not overcorrect.
