ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va.-- The Virginia Department of Transportation crews worked to keep ice from sticking to the roads on Sunday.
As of 5 p.m., it reported several incidents on the roads but moderate road conditions in the counties of Augusta, Rockingham and Shenandoah .
Dereck Turner who lives in Rockingham County went to the store driving his truck. He said if he did not have one, he would not drive in this weather.
"I wouldn't be able to get out of the driveway. If I did, it would take all day to plow my way out," said Turner.
However, he still has concerns about being involved in an accident.
"The cars could slide off, get in your side and hit you. It can be bad," said Turner.
According to James Madison University Police, a car slid off the road and flipped over after 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. Damages to the windshield and the roof were visible, after the firefighters pulled out the trapped driver. No injuries were reported.
VDOT Staunton District Communications Manager Sandy Myers said drivers should use caution when driving during inclement weather.
"It's critical that folks do not drive. But if they do have to drive, they have to drive slowly and give themselves plenty of room between themselves and the other vehicles," Myers said.
Crews used salt and abrasives to treat the roads on Sunday. VDOT had 945 pieces of equipment out in full force.
"Ice and freezing rain makes crews have to put down more chemicals, it tends to be a more expensive storm," said Myers.
According to Myers, chemicals had not been necessary to use before 5 p.m. Salt and other materials were used the most on Sunday.
Crews on Saturday did the anti-icing on the interstate and primary roads.
"If you didn't put it down, you will have icing occurring at an earlier period in the storm," said Myers.
Overpasses and higher elevations remained as VDOT's main priorities on Sunday.
"Anything that can have air go underneath it those are the areas that are going to freeze first," said Myers.
To avoid any ice, Turner will keep his trip short.
"It is a little rough outside," said Turner.
Crews will work for 24 hours until the storm passes.
