Poor road conditions were to blame for a crash Tuesday on Back Belmont Road.

Police said at 1:45 p.m. Jan. 23, a 2001 Ford Focus driven by Karin Pierce, 69, with a passenger, Susannah Long, 34, both of Belmont, lost control on slush near Ridge Road.

The car slid off the road and into a stand of trees. Air bags deployed, but both occupants refused treatment and were released, police said.

This was one of several accidents that occurred Jan. 23, attributed to weather-related driving conditions.
