ISLANDIA - The latest snowfall created a slow commute for many across Long Island last night.

Officials in Oyster Bay said salt and sand trucks were working all day Friday to keep drivers as safe as possible. However, slick roads caused a few crashes, including a two-car accident in Farmingville.

Crews said with just 2-3 inches of snow on the ground, trucks would only be damaged attempting to plow. They said they'd rely on sand and salt to keep roads safe.

Many residents said the wet roads and lack of snow was a relief after last weekend's blizzard. Drivers are still urged to drive slowly and use extra caution.
