A quick change from rain to snow caught some people off guard Wednesday morning, including one driver whose car flipped on a rural road near Le Claire. It happened on Wisconsin Avenue not far from Pleasant Valley Junior High School. The car apparently slipped off the road where there is a curve and landed in the ditch on its top. When we found it, no one was there, but it was marked with police tape. We don't know if anyone was hurt.

On Highway 61 near Eldridge, one accident turned into another involving a squad car.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, a Scott County Deputy pulled over to assist a driver that went into the ditch. Then, the driver of another vehicle approached the scene and lost control, sliding into the deputy's squad car. No one was in the squad at the time and no one was hurt but Trooper Dan Loussaert says it's just another reminder to slow down.

"Most people are getting it, not driving too closely, not using cruise control, staying on the right side or right lane of a four lane highway, which is the safest place to be if you would lose control," said Loussaert.

The trooper adds that unfortunately, a small number of bad drivers makes it more difficult for everyone else.
