There was snow and ice accumulation at a Feb. 25 two-vehicle accident on I-91 north in Coventry. Police say a pickup truck operated by Zachary Carbonneau, 23, of Newport — shortly after losing visibility due to disturbed or windblown snow — struck the rear of an unladen tractor-trailer operated by Channing Nussey, 45, of Howick, Quebec. The pickup was towed; the tractor-trailer had minor rear-end damage and was driven from the scene. There were no injuries. The 5:50 p.m. crash blocked the I-91 passing lane for the 45-minute duration of the incident. Carbonneau was issued a violation for speeds unreasonable for road conditions.
