Several crashes caused by icy roads—including one in Level—have been reported in the past day, according to the Harford County Department of Emergency Services.

Specifically, the Harford County 911 call center reported these roads were problematic:
  • 3600 block of Old Level Road in Level
  • MD Route 543 (several areas) in Bel Air
  • 1700 block of Singer Road in Abingdon
  • US Route 1 northbound at Bel Air Bypass
  • Red Pump Road and St. Francis Road in Bel Air
Harford County sent crews to salt roads Sunday night, according to a statement from the Department of Emergency Services.
Harford County Emergency Manager Rick Ayers said that melting snow left roads slick. "The result of the subfreezing temperatures has left many roads and bridges covered with a thin layer of ice, which ultimately caused a number of
accidents," Ayers said.

The department advised drivers to be extremely cautious.
