TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - It's the time of year when drivers and farmers have to share the road.
Over the last year, News 18 reported multiple crashes involving farm equipment and passenger cars.
According to farm safety specialist Steve Wettschurack, this is the time of the year that both farmers and drivers should be alert when traveling in rural areas.
He said most farm equipment only goes about 20 mph, which can catch some drivers by surprise.
"Some of that equipment takes up a lot of space," said Wettschurack. "Not always do they see you. If you see them, then you need to start slowing down. Get that speed down to somewhere close to what they have."
Wettschurack said farmers have to do their part by not over-working themselves and staying alert.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
