NEW CASTLE — Despite a weather system that turned roads icy Saturday evening, no major problems were reported by local police agencies.

Snow squalls put a quick coating of snow on roadways, turning roads and walkways slippery about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. 

A pick-up truck overturned on Interstate 376 in Union Township just before 6 p.m. but the driver was not injured, according to Steve Stasko, chief of Union Township Volunteer Fire Department. The driver, whose name was not available, was from South Carolina and was driving too fast for conditions, he said.

Otherwise, the Pennsylvania State Police and other police agencies reported no major problems, just a number of fender benders.
