Winter weather creates highway havoc 

     Police kept busy along Highway 12 last week tending to numerous slideoffs as motorists discovered that roads were 12-12-13-hwy-12-accidentmuch slicker than they looked.

     Last week, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office responded to several traffic crashes, with four of the incidences occurring at the same location at approximately milepost 55 on U.S. Highway 12 between Orofino and Kamiah.
