JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — Wednesday morning Jasper Fire and Rescue responded to a crash along I-49 in their district where a pickup overturned.

As the weather gets worse into the evening there will be many crashes that will be left, wrapped in yellow tape.

Jasper Fire and Rescue state, “Just a reminder that if the vehicle is marked with yellow tape it has already been checked and does not need reported again.”

Those vehicles with tape will be removed when weather is more favorable or conditions are safer to remove it.

Missouri State Emergency Management say, “Allow yourself extra time to get where you need to go, increase your following distance, and drive SLOW. Focus 💯 percent on driving, and remember NOT to slam on your brakes or over-correct if you start to slide.”
