Kelowna police are reminding motorists to slow down after responding to several accidents Friday morning.

Early morning snowfall, mixed with frigid conditions, have coated many city roads with a layer of ice, which has led to several collisions Friday morning.

Around 8 a.m. emergency crews attended a rollover on Glenmore Road near Galiano Road. Following that crash, Mounties set up along Glenmore to slow traffic down.

An hour later, crews responded to a crash on Highway 33 near Ziprick Road. That collision forced police to shut down Highway 33 for about 30 minutes to deal with the clean-up.

More unconfirmed reports of accidents throughout the city continue to come in.

“Police are requesting motorists to slow down and drive to the conditions,” said Const. Kris Clark.
