The Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department investigated 20 accidents between 7:30 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. today, but none resulted in serious injuries, sheriff's spokesman Maj. Todd Noblitt said.

Sheriff's deputies investigated 12 slideoffs, four property-damage accidents and four personal-injury accidents. Three of the personal-injury accidents were related to the weather and road conditions, Noblitt said.

Main county roads are wet, while secondary county roads are slick in some spots, Noblitt said.

10:23 a.m. update

The Columbus fire and police departments have not investigated or responded to a large number of accidents this morning, said Columbus Public Safety spokesperson Lt. Matt Myers.

"Our street department had city streets in pretty good condition considering the wet and slushy surface. Drivers did a good job this morning of slowing down and driving with caution," Myers said.
