Howard County Police said there were a total of 87 traffic accidents on Sunday and Tuesday, the two days the county received snowfall.

Police reported 65 accidents occurred on Sunday, Dec. 8, while 22 accidents happened on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Police spokesperson Sherry Llewellyn said she couldn't say for sure why there were almost three times as many on Sunday, but speculated that "there were fewer vehicles on the road on Tuesday after multiple days of snow and ice" and that schools and federal offices were closed on Tuesday.
