Sudden snowfall causes travel nightmare in New York

Sudden and unexpected snowfall in Malta, New York turned traffic into a crawl, as visibility was slim to none last Wednesday. Furthermore, the area saw many accidents, which slowed down all lanes. For instance, one crash involved a tractor-trailer, which while blinded by a snow squall, jackknifed spilling gallons of fuel on the roadway. Likewise, that particular semi accident shut down all three northbound lanes, and emergency crews took quite some time to clean up the diesel fuel.

More accidents took place between exit 11 and 12 on Northway in Saratoga County. Although many off the crashes were only fender benders, they did not help the flow of traffic that was packed with holiday drivers. The heavy snowfall was attributed to quick hitting snow that called for an alert due to snow squalls, which lasted for about an hour. Luckily for the next few days there are no more squalls predicted, and New Year's Day seemed to greet the area residents without travel issues.
