State Police say icy road conditions lead to three similar accidents in which tractor trailers slid off the road. Route 9 in Hancock County is expected to be closed for much of the day.

A dispatcher for the State Police confirmed for us that the first accident was reported at around 4:30 this morning. No injuries have been reported. The road is shut down from the intersection with Route 179 in Aurora to the intersection of Route 193 in Beddington.

Detours are set up and signs are in place. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area today while wreckers work to pull the big rigs back onto the roadway and remove them.
