Tallahassee, FL -- October 18, 2011 --

Slick conditions are making roads around Tallahassee a little more treacherous today. Several fenders benders and overturned vehicles have been reported because of the wet conditions.

We have included a slideshow of the one vehicle accident that occurred in the median at mile marker 194 on Interstate 10.

Authorities on scene say the driver of the vehicle was taken to a local hospital as a precautionary measure, but injuries appear to be minor.

    The weather does not cause these accidents. The morons that feel they can drive just as stupidly as they get away with in sunny weather... Bottom line, we need more traffic cops... all around Capital Circle, all up monroe until the oak valley center...... Cant tell you how many idiots drive all of these roads with no headlights in the rain because its daytime.. even when you cant see 20ft in the thick of the rain

    Anyone know what happened on Old Bainbridge between Tharpe and High Rd? A police was redirecting traffic this afternoon on my way home from work. Wondering if someone got into an accident.

      Oh wow, you didn't hear? Apparently there was a pregnant jogger pushing a stroller with her diabaled cousin in it. They were minding their own business when a large goose flying overhead got lost in the clouds and flew into an airplane. The airplane spun out of control and crashed. The pilot was able to bail out using an umbrella as a parachute (it was raining after all)and landed in a tree. When this happened a squirrel got scared and dropped an acorn that fell onto the joggers hand causing her to lose control of the stroller. At this point a tractor trailer came by and ran over the joggers cousin in the stroller, then the jogger, and finally hitting the tree that the pilot was in, knocking him to the ground. They all died. The squirrel is in therapy.

          The bright spot for me through this whole tragedy is that I could help you with your query.

        I saw the whole thing. It was tragic. I could barely enjoy my fried balogna sandwich later.

    It's not the media. Ask the people in the wrecks, and they'll all blame the weather because we know they won't take responsibility.

    Well, it is always someone else's fault, right? This is the age of personal responsibility, isn't it?

    I wish the media would stop blaming the weather for crashes. The weather may contribute to crashes but they DO NOT CAUSE THEM. People need to learn to slow down when it's raining. Maximum speed limits are for good driving conditions, not rain and other poor driving conditions. Who am I kidding, some people don't even have enough sense to turn from one lane completely into the other lane, or even turn on their headlights in the rain or fog.

    not because of the wet conditions. because of drivers who do not know how to drive in wet conditions.
