First responders across the Upstate, including firefighters were busy Friday. For most departments it was car accidents keeping them on their toes. Icy weather conditions made their 24-hour shifts even more difficult.
"Weather with slick roads makes it harder because we have to watch out for everyone else passing the accidents on the roads, we have to watch out for other drivers as well as look out for our own self," said Capt. Richard Campbell of the Boiling Springs Fire Department.
Starting at 10 a.m. Friday morning the crew responded to nine different non-stop traffic accidents. That included a vehicle into pole collision on Pelham Road, a school bus that had gone into a ditch and a charter bus full of people that collided with another vehicle.
None of the accidents the Boiling Springs crew responded to Friday involved serious injuries.
