Crews dumped salt and sand on Highway 5 earlier today, trying to protect drivers from remaining patches of ice on roads left over from the freezing rain and sleet that hit York County on Friday.
The state's department of transportation has done a "jam up job" in responding quickly to dangerous stretches of road, said Cotton Howell, York Countys emergency management director.
There were no fatalities caused by the winter weather in the tri-county area on Friday or Saturday morning.
"People pretty much heeded the warnings and stayed in," Howell said. "And those that were out obviously used a little caution in getting around."
York County did see a "rash" of car accidents in the late afternoon on Friday, he said.
The S.C. Highway Patrol reported at least 50 car crashes on Friday afternoon, according to their real-time traffic log.
The department of transportation "did everything they could," Howell said, to make York County's roads safe for drivers.
"They put the chemicals down before," he said.
"The problem was this came in three waves. By the time we really got that last wave, a lot of it had already washed off because of the rain."
Warmer temperatures by Saturday afternoon should clear up most roads in the county, Howell said.
"It's supposed to be up in the 40s today," he said. "What's here is supposed to melt as soon as this kind of haze burns off and it's supposed to be a nice afternoon."
