KARNES CITY – Rainy weather last week created conditions that contributed to a rash of traffic accidents.

Later that day at 12:28 p.m. emergency workers responded to a one vehicle rollover. EMS was also dispatched to the scene.

Less than an hour later, at 1:23 p.m., an 18-wheeler driving on U.S. Highway 181 near Shorty’s Restaurant just south of Falls City rolled over and hit a parked pickup.
