Winter weather is being blamed for three rollover accidents that occurred in the eastern portion of Cowley County over the weekend.

Within 45 minutes Saturday afternoon, emergency crews responded to two accidents that occurred about a mile apart near the intersection of U.S. 166 highway and Cowley 1 east of Ark City. In each instance, vehicles left the roadway and overturned into the ditch.

The accidents on 166 occurred after 4 p.m. when temperatures dropped and moisture began to increase.

No significant injuries were reported and no one was taken to the hospital, according to the Cowley County Sheriff’s Dept.

No injuries were reported in connection with a similar accident that occurred on U.S. 160 highway near Cambridge around 8 p.m. Saturday.
