Original story:

Cochrane RCMP would like to thank the public for their patience while emergency crews worked to quickly clear the scenes.

Cochrane RCMP is currently on scene of numerous collisions on Hwy. 1A east of town. 

Due to reduced visibility, snowfall, and slippery road conditions, several vehicles have entered the ditch. 

Eastbound lanes are partially blocked and traffic is moving very slowly.

Police are asking motorists to avoid the area if possible.  

If driving, exercise caution by adjusting to the conditions, reducing speed, and allowing extra distance for stopping.
