UNION — Falling temperatures led to roads becoming slick again Monday night and resulted in two separate crashes on Sweet Potato Ridge Road.

One motorist left the roadway just west of Deubner Drive and struck a decorative split rail fence in the 3400 block. Just west of S. Old Mill Road another motorist lost control and struck a utility pole.

Union Police attributed both accidents to motorists driving too fast for the road conditions.

Robin A. Nelson, 18, of Union, was cited for failure to control after striking the fence.

Nancy J. Justice, 60, of Union, was also cited for failure to control after striking the utility pole.
