Icy conditions over the weekend kept Saline County Sheriff's personnel busy.

Sheriff's Captain Jim Hughes said this morning that sheriff's personnel assisted the Kansas Highway Patrol with three accidents and worked numerous slide-offs and six accidents Sunday.

Four of the six accidents included persons with minor, non-life-threatening injuries, he said. Two of the persons injured were transported to Salina Regional Health Center, Hughes added.

Hughes said five of the six accidents occurred between 12:50-1:45 p.m. Sunday on a stretch of westbound Interstate 70 east of Salina that included mile markers 256 and 257.
