A minivan rests in a field south of Younger Road along U.S. 127 south of Celina on Friday after the driver lost control in nearly white-out conditions. The season's first weather event caused about 40 slide-offs in Mercer County, most of which were reported on U.S. 127, Mercer County Sheriff Office Chief Deputy Gery Thobe said Friday evening. The sheriff's department close a section of U.S. 127 and state Route 274 from 11:47 a.m. to 1:26 p.m. Friday due to several semitrailers being jack-knifed. No accidents or injuries were reported. Local weather forecaster Dennis Howick said the storm produced 0.7 inch of snow with high wind gusts.
