SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Road crews have been out in full force on Friday.

In Sullivan County, as soon as crews would make a sweep, more snow would move in.

We had a crew who tagged along with Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom.

He says they have all of their deputies out on the street helping those who need a hand.

The layer of ice underneath all of the snow make it extremely slick.

Cottom says there have been at least 20 slides-offs as of Friday afternoon.

"We began having slide-offs around 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., right through there. We worked several throughout the county. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries or fatalities, at this time," Cottom told us.
