Hermon Crash 

Authorities say 27-year-old Jason Tompkins was heading east on Rt. 2 around 8:30 a.m. when he hit a patch of black ice and lost control of his car.

Tompkins crossed the center line and slammed into another car, driven by 47-year-old Vernard Wheeler of Hermon.

Both men had minor injuries and were taken to the hospital to be checked out.

No charges have been filed in the accident.

Sheriff’s deputies and state police have responded to a number of calls in the last few days of drivers off the road.

Police advise that drivers take it easy, and slow.
