Though not much of Thursday

(WIBW) - What started as rain Thursday morning turned to sleet and, eventually, big fluffy flakes.

It fell for a few hours. Though not much stuck to the ground very long, it was enough to create a few slick spots on area highways, which sparked a few wrecks

The Kansas Highway Patrol blamed slushy roads for a rollover accident on Hwy. 73 near the town of Reserve in Brown County. KHP's crash log says a 1994 GMC pickup was headed south on the highway when the driver lost control, went off the road, flipped one time and stopped in the ditch facing north. The driver, 20-year-old Tamera Purcell of Lincoln, Neb. was the only person in the vehicle. She was taken to Hiawatha Community Hospital for treatment of injuries.

A two-car accident was reported on I-70 in Wabaunsee County, near the the Eskridge exit. One person suffered minor injuries. KHP did not say whether it was related to slick roads.
