An inch of rainfall and temperatures hovering in the mid-30s were a recipe for disaster Saturday for drivers across the Kenai Peninsula and the state.
Alaska State Troopers responded to nine motor vehicle collisions, six vehicles in the ditch and four motorist requests for assistance in the area. As of press time, Kenai Police Department reported two accidents; Soldotna Police reported none.
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said roads across southcentral Alaska were slick and caused numerous accidents of different severities.
