COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Yet another winter blast wreaked havoc on
central Ohio roads Wednesday morning, closing schools and delaying
morning commutes.

Snow levels reached as high as eight inches in
the area, while ice as much as a quarter-of-an-inch thick covered
vehicles, roads, and sidewalks, increasing the danger for workers and
students who were forced to venture outside.

Several crashes were
reported on roads and highways on Wednesday morning, and many vehicles
became stuck in heavy snow, however, no injuries or lengthy highway
closures resulted from any of the accidents.

Most of the snow
expected to blanket central Ohio had already fallen by the time drivers
hit the roads during the morning rush hour, and a winter storm warning
in effect in the area since Tuesday afternoon was set to expire at 10
