Blowing snow and whiteout conditions are blamed for a four-car accident on Route 77, Alabama, at 7:09 a.m., Wednesday that injured only person, who did not require hospitalization.
Earl E. Howard Jr., 17, of Route 98, Attica, was southbound on Route 77 near Route 63 in blowing snow.
Jonathan R. Callard, 27, of Bates Road, Medina, also heading south, slowed down for a snowplow, which prompted Rebecca J. Lindsay, 24, of Telegraph Road, Medina, to reduce speed, too.
Because of the blowing snow, Howard reportedly did not see the cars ahead of him braking. His 1998 Chevy truck hit Lindsay's 2001 Ford sedan, causing it to strike Callard's 1995 Ford sedan.
Alyssa M. Dombrowski, 20, of South Avenue, Medina, was also southbound. Due to whiteout conditions, she reportedly did not see the accident and her 2000 Chevy sedan struck Howard's truck, causing it to strike Lindsay's car.
Lindsay suffered only a minor injury.
No citations were issued.
The accident was investigated by Deputy Lonnie Nati.
