Storm kept law enforcement busy

FRESNO, Calif.

Fresno firefighters freed one man and one woman from this overturned truck on Chestnut and Lane in southeast Fresno Friday night. The accident shut down the intersection for more than an hour.

In northwest Fresno, Fresno Police responded to this crash along Herndon and Millburn. Investigators say a 16-year-old boy lost control in the rain and crashed into several shrubs along the center median.

Don Adams of Fresno drove through the storm on his way from Shaver Lake to Fresno. "A lot of people slid off the side of the road and a lot of stalled traffic."

While rain continued to soak the valley, Friday's storm also dumped several inches of snow in the high Sierra.

Since Thursday night, China Peak ski resort has received 13-inches for a total of 26-inches of new snow just this week. And with the busy President's weekend now underway, drivers are being told to remain cautious.

Don Adams said, "Ski weekend, people go up and they're not really aware of what the conditions are like. It's pretty bad. They just need to slow down."

Aside from the roadway hazards, the stormy weather also impacted outdoor events.

In northeast Fresno, officials canceled Fresno State's baseball home opener against Gonzaga, because it was too wet to play.

Fans, players, and Fresno State employees left disappointed.

Another concern for authorities are areas with standing water. We spotted several of them while driving around.

So, of course, the best thing to do is slow down.
