Snow Remains a Danger on City Side Streets

Many parts of Maryland are still digging and plowing from the state's biggest snowfall this winter.
While most main roads and highways are clear, side streets in cities remain a problem.
Saturday afternoon a delivery truck swerved and slammed into five-feet of icy plowed snow on the side of Union Town Road in Westminster.
The truck driver said he was not speeding, but just lost control of the vehicle.
It shows that even plowed snow sitting on the road is a temporary barrier than can knock a car off course easily.
Neighbors complained that days like this are also a problem for those who need to walk along the road, because the sidewalk is buried under the snow.
Katherine Dukehart has lived there for over three-decades and observes the traffic during the winter, "They don't have any sense, to tell you the truth, and look at this snow, you have to be very careful."
There have been similar accidents in other Maryland cities because of the large snow piles left from Thursday's storm.
