Convoy of Semis Rerouted through Butte Today after I-90 Accident
Convoy of Semis Rerouted through Butte Today after I-90 Accident
In true form, February's winter weather came like a lion, and this morning's early morning storm followed suit. Unfortunately, the aftermath of the storm and drop in temperatures today caused many accidents across the state, including the 40-mile stretch on I-90 from Deer Lodge to Butte. How do I know for sure this was the case? I experienced it firsthand during my commute from Anaconda to Butte this morning. First off, I learned of the harsh road conditions from Anaconda to Deer Lodge from a friend who travels to Deer Lodge for work. As for my encounter on I-90 this morning, the first accident I encountered involved a semi mangled in the median on the west side of Fairmont Hill, an area I have commonly referred to as the Bermuda Triangle of roadways. NOT because vehicles "disappear" in that area, but because of the bizarre accidents that EERILY and repeatedly occur there in the SAME LOCATIONS.
