Winter weather contributes to dangerous driving conditions

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – The CHP is warning motorists that snow chains or snow tires are required for all vehicles on mountain roads Wednesday.

The strong winter storm that moved into the region on Tuesday dumped snow between Pine Valley and Julian. Several inches also fell in Descanso and Crestwood Summit.

The icy and wet conditions led to several spin-outs Wednesday morning, including at least four along Interstate 8 just east of Alpine.

"We just lost control and went to my left side and hit the bridge and just bounced, and ended in the middle of the freeway," a motorist said.

The CHP is reminding drivers to slow down while driving in the snow and to turn on their windshield wipers.
