Later on Wednesday morning, traffic on 24th Ave (Highway 218) near the Van Horne/Newhall  corner was tied up after a minivan collided with a fork lift, causing damage to both vehicles.

Earlier on Tuesday, a car was heading toward Shellburg on County Home Road and due to the fog a driver was unable to see the train cars on the tracks. The driver swerved to the side of the road, knocking down one of the signals, which landed on the back of the car. carsignals
