Brandon deputies responded to about eight accidents last week resulting from snowy, icy roads following a storm Dec. 12.
Oakland County Sheriff's Sgt. Pete Burkett, Brandon substation commander, said three of the crashes occurred on Oakwood Road on Dec. 14, two days after the storm when the road was still icy. There were no serious injuries.
A reckless driving citation was issued to a pickup driver who a deputy saw pass two other motorists.
"People have misconception they can go as fast as they want in these road conditions and that is not the case," he said.
