Police were called to 12 crashes on icy Brandon roads yesterday, and at least two have been reported so far this morning.
The intersection at 26th Street and Victoria Avenue was closed for a little while at about 9 a.m. this morning, after a car slid into a light standard, knocking it off its base, although not all the way over.
At about the same time, there were reports of a crash that was slowing things down at 17th Street and Princess Avenue as well.
The collisions come despite a plea from the police yesterday that motorists take care and caution while they are out and about, a plea that they reiterated today.
Police said that drivers should slow down and drive to the road conditions, not necessarily at the posted speed limit.
Meanwhile, city of Brandon crews were busy clearing roads near 34th Street, working west from Pacific to Aberdeen Avenue yesterday, according to spokesperson Allison Collins.
Today, equipment was to move to the area from First Street west to 18th Street, from Victoria to Richmond Avenue.
The continuing cold weather has also pulled Brandon School Division buses off the highways. They're not running outside of city limits today.
