Police handling accidents, parking violations during snow

Local law enforcement dealt with some vehicle accidents during the snowfall Thursday evening and Friday.

Officers have also been writing parking tickets for parking on municipal streets during the snowstorm, according to officials.

While the accident totals seem low, police dispatchers seemed busy during the day Friday with accidents and other snow-related incidents for those listening on police scanners.

Cathy Nevara of the Oswego Police Department said that, overnight from Thursday evening to Friday morning, there was one accident and two calls for vehicles in ditches.

Nevara said three vehicles were ticketed for ordinance violations for parking on village streets during the snowfall, and two vehicles were towed for such violations.

Montgomery Police Chief Daniel Meyers said his department's officers handled three crashes - including a hit-and-run -and assisted three motorists overnight.

Deputy Wayne Dial of the Kendall County Sheriff's Office said deputies handled only three minor accidents overnight.

As of late Friday morning, Deputy Chief Terry Klingel of the Yorkville Police Department said the department handled four accidents and three vehicles in the ditch overnight.

In Plano, the police saw no accidents overnight and two vehicles that needed assistance out of a ditch, according to Sgt. Norman Allison. Allison said the police were busy, however, writing parking tickets for parking on city streets during the snowfall - officers wrote 71 such tickets between midnight and late Friday morning.
