A thick layer of freezing drizzle coated Hubbard County roadways Sunday as drivers who should know better adjusted to winter driving conditions the hard way.

Numerous accidents were reported around the area.

Hubbard County crews were out sanding and salting roadways early Sunday. The area is under a winter weather advisory.

"The causative event is freezing drizzle," said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Barrett.
