News Winter weather conditions lead to accidents

A driver traveling east on Old Murphy Road was involved in an accident shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2.

As temperatures remained below freezing throughout the day and into the night, an accumulation of snow and ice remained on many portions of the roads in Franklin.

Due to these conditions, the 58-year-old driver slid his 2000 Dodge Durango off of the right side of the road landing on its side at the bottom of an embankment.

The driver was transported to the hospital after sustaining minor injuries and released.
