Dozens of accidents, disabled vehicles on area highways overnight; schools in Nyack, Nanuet, Clarkstown and Pearl River all have 2-hour delayed openings.

New York State Police this morning urge drivers to use caution when traveling on the region's roadways as sleet and freezing rain continue to make roadways slick and unpredictable.

Troopers urge adjustments to your schedule to ensure a safe commute wherever you are headed.

Since 6 p.m. Monday, police said that snow and freezing rain created hazardous driving conditions. Troopers report nearly 40 accidents, with three people injured in accidents in the area, with more than 40 disabled vehicles needing assistance.

Most major roadways had significant delays with poor driving conditions and drivers losing control or becoming disabled.

Public schools in Nyack, Nanuet, Clarkstown and Pearl River this morning have enacted two-hour delayed openings because of the weather and road conditions.
