JACKSON, Tenn.- A warning from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office to stay off the roads and avoid putting yourself in a bad situation in bitter cold temperatures. ” We are advising everyone in the Madison County area if they can to stay off the roads and stay inside,” said Sgt. Luke Finney of the Madison County Sheriff’s Dept. “When your starting off and your not careful you will start spinning and then get stuck,” James Davidson said. Deputies said many of the main roads look to be clear and that is fooling people into thinking they can brave the conditions. “The roads are pretty bad out in the county areas the main roads in the city look pretty good but many of the county roads are still quite covered,” Finney said. The warning comes after deputies said they responded to two-car accident at Christmasville and Oakfield Roads Wednesday morning. That crash eventually turned into a five-car pile up because of the extremely dangerous conditions. Motorists said they are trying to be careful and others on the road need to take the same approach. “There’s a lot of different places that you won’t notice and you just need to be careful and take it slow because if you don’t watch it, you will end up where I am and be on the news,” Davidson said.
