State police say they responded to more than three dozen accidents in the Southern Tier, which were brought on by recent wintry weather.
There were 27 property damage crashes, three personal injury accidents, and 13 vehicles that slid off the road in Steuben and Chemung County, according to troopers.
Troopers say that those who respond to accident scenes – including tow truck operators, firefighters, and police are putting themselves at risk.
“Our goal is for everyone to make it home safe, so the New York State Police is advising drivers to be cognizant of road conditions and to slow down during inclement weather,” troopers said in a release.
