EUGENE, Ore. - While the snow didn’t arrive Wednesday, drivers still had to deal with icy roads on their morning commute.

Oregon DOT reported five accidents on state highways in Lane County. There were no reports of fatalities.

One of the crashes on Wednesday was a rollover on Highway 99 in Eugene.

“I was driving on this right lane and there was a truck in front of me that starting sliding so I kind of starting sliding and I freaked out,” driver Linda Mora said.

Another accident took place in the same location as Mora’s just minutes after.
