If you don't have to go out, the Oregon State Police is asking that you stay home due to winter like driving conditions. “Conditions are getting pretty dicey in a lot of the State, Santiam Pass has been hit real hard and there are troopers that have been working up there all day. They are asking you to delay any unnecessary travel in that area due to high winds, heavy winds, and low visibility.” Oregon State Police Lieutenant Greg Hastings says the forecast is that conditions will deteriorate Monday tonight. If you do have to travel, be prepared for winter like driving conditions and limited visibility.   There have been at least ten crashes on Santiam Pass today, some of those involving injuries.

 
Driving conditions over Highways 20 and 26 are very bad right now. In fact if you don't have to drive, stay home, especially if you want to travel on Highways 20 or 26. “The were telling be that Condition “D” - the folks in our dispatch center don’t remember that last time it was implemented. So we’ve gone past where traction tires are required. If you don’t have chains, you can’t get up and over the mountain.” ODOT's Peter Murphy says even if you are driving a four wheel drive, you must have chains or you will not be allowed over the mountain passes. There are not enough Oregon State Police troopers to respond to all of the crashes.   There have been at least ten crashes on Santiam Pass today.
