Great Falls authorities respond to several crashes on Friday

Posted: Updated:

Great Falls authorities have responded to several crashes and slide-offs on Friday due to bad weather and road conditions. 

One crash along 6th Street Southwest resulted in one vehicle on the lawn of a residence.

Witness reports indicate no one was injured in the accident.

According to the Great Falls Police Department, officers have been working crashes consistently.

Snow forecast

Meteorologist Mike Rawlins is calling for an additional 5-8" of snow for lower elevations through Saturday. Fortunately, the snow won't come all at once, so road crews should be able to keep up and clear major highways in a timely manner.

Montana's mountain passes are expected to get an additional 12-18" of snow, which will certainly cause travel headaches.

Anyone planning to hit the roads on Friday or Saturday should be prepared for hazardous travel conditions and allow plenty of extra time to reach their destination.

The Montana Department of Transportation recently launched a project to provide people with online photos from cameras mounted on 10 snowplows at various locations across the state. The "plow-cam" images are available on the traveler information map website when a camera-configured plow is active on Montana highways. The images are taken approximately every half mile and are available for viewing for between 30-45 minutes.
