Road conditions lead to multiple accidents in Waukesha County

NOW: Road conditions lead to multiple accidents in Waukesha County

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A mix of sleet and snow wreaked havoc in Waukesha County. The Sheriff's Office responded to dozens of calls Wednesday for cars off the road or into ditches. 

The scrapers were back out for Waukesha County residents and plows out in full force tackling the April snow. Drivers say getting around has been a challenge. 

"Horrible. You can barely see in front of you," said Forrest Lynn about Wednesday's snow. 

"Pretty bad. You don't want to go too fast. I mean you can't see too far, but when it gets dark, it's going to get bad," said Scott Schmidt. 

That's what Shannon Schwartz is concerned about because she works late. 

"A lot worried tonight because our parking lot is horrible and it's been snowing since 1:00," Schwartz said. 

However, Lynn will be driving around in the wintry mess all night because snow removal is his job. 

"It's going to be brutal. It's going to be a long night."

With the snow the few days, snow plows were able to create a pile about 15 feet tall in one Waukesha strip mall parking lot.
