Snow started to blanket parts of West Central Ohio late Wednesday night, which led to slick driving conditions this morning.

There were numerous slide-offs reported and a few injury accidents.

The Champaign County Sheriff's Office responded to a rollover injury accident north of Mechanicsburg near the intersection of State Route 4 and State Route 161 at two a.m.

In Logan County, the Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol handled a two-vehicle injury accident at the intersection of State Route 287 and County Road 144 (near Middleburg) around 5:30 a.m.

Prater, who suffered minor injuries, was transported to Union County Memorial Hospital by Allen Township Fire and EMS.

She was cited for failure to yield.
