Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on safer driving and accident response

(Hillsboro) The number of fatal traffic accidents statewide increased in 2022 and law enforcement agencies are hoping to see that number drop this year. Lieutenant Chris Hoffman is the leader of Platoon 2 with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. He says responding to traffic accidents can be very dangerous depending on where the accident takes place and what time of the day it is.

As far as driving in winter weather conditions, like on Wednesday morning, it can also be problematic for many reasons.

While there were a few traffic accidents in various areas of Jefferson County Wednesday morning, it appears there were very few serious accidents involving significant injuries.
