CENTRAL- Crews worked to clean highways of sand, spread to make roads safer after the ice event this week.

Now, police said they were worried the sand was causing wrecks after the fact. The sand, while it helped in frozen conditions, is slick when the streets are dry and drivers are not staying cautions.

There have been a number of accidents where drivers are believed to have hit the sand, lost control, and crashed.
