Nightfall Brought Numerous Accidents, Dangerous Conditions Continue

There were multiple accidents across Eastern Carolina Saturday evening because of the icy roads.

Many roads in Eastern Carolina remain dangerouly slick Sunday.

Bridges and overpasses are some of the biggest problems.

Saturday night, there was an accident on the Highway 17 bridge in Beaufort County between Washington and Chocowinity involving two vehicles. At the same time, there was a two-vehicle accident not far from there on the overpass near Whichard's Beach road.

Emergency officials stress not to travel unless it is absolutely necessary.

    I am surprised to see that the DOT didn't plow any of the roads that I had to drive on. Firetower and Arlington are some high traffic roads. I don't understand why they weren't plowed when it was just slushy snow. It would have been a lot easier to clean up before it froze overnight. We need to be proactive. I give the DOT an "F" on this. There should have been snow plows standing by. I know this is Eastern NC. But we do get snow periodically.

    It's funny that at the end of the day there will be just as many northerners as southerners in the ditch.You guys are fighting the wrong ones we are all AMERICANS.If you don't have a job to go to stay home so it will be safer for those who do .To all of you employers if you need these people to work. Make the parking lots safe.They still have to get to the building.Wise up.

    I'm not whining about my job. I sure hope I never see you in practice. I'm glad I work with compassionate doctors and not pompous ones like you.

    I am so glad I have access to the NC Medical Board. There is no active nor inactive MD by that name in this state. Of course, I thought to myself any MD that got up here spewing all that probably lost his license for some reason or another. But the board shows all active and inactive practitioners as well as their specialty. No one by that name listed. He/She probably isn't aware of that therefore MD they are not even if they were using a alias. I used to work weekends and nights at PCMH and thankful for all that do it now because we need them. If everyone had the attitude of the FAKE doctor no one would get any care.

    I thought compassion and caring were two of the qualifications needed to be in the medical field. You have proved me wrong. I hope many of your patients see your post and quickly find another physician. I know I would if I had been seeing you. Considering a patient just another drop in the bucket..or another dollar in the pocket?

    I am an M.D., private practice, I work when I want to work, you can't tell me what to do. Quit whining about how you HAVE to be at work. If you don't like it, find another job. That's why I left the hospitals, for my own office. Now, if a patient gets uppity with me, demands that I be at the office at a certain time, I'll drop the client, like that. I don't need their business. They're just another drop in the bucket, that patient won't affect my bottom line.

    To D.Novins, M.D.- Maybe you don't see any reason but when your job tells you that you HAVE to be at work then that's what we do! Hospital workers don't get days off, the mail may be delievered, rain, snow, sleet or hail but they get holidays off, we don't!! I agree our parking lots in Greenville were not good at all today!!!

    To "NC NATIVE": Blah, blah, blah. Doo-dah, doo-dah. You're yet another who person who prides yourself on your southern heritage and gets off on feeling superior to everyone who isn't from here. Well, to coin a phrase from a "southern" movie, "Frankly, Scarlet ... I don't give a da**!" All of that "go back north talk" is just a lot of self-congratulating bull. You obviously have an inferiority complex that manifests as statements meant to make you feel superior to others who aren't like you. Well, aren't you precious? Touch you! The man who has nothing to brag about except his southern ancestors is like a potato plant; the best part of him is underground!

    don't know if you are really an MD or not, but I sure hope I don't ever have to have you as a physician. My sister stayed overnight at the hospital one night because bad weather was expected & she was afraid she couldn't get in when needed.
