Winter weather is likely to blame for traffic incidents around western New York Saturday. If your plans Saturday take you on area roadways, remember to drive slow on slick and slushy roadways.

On Millersport Highway Northbound, Route 263, a crash at I-990 closed the right lane of traffic. The included photo shows the scene at the incident in Amherst. News 4 is working to learn more information.

There are no details on how a vehicle ended up disabled off Route 5 Saturday morning, but it resulted in a road closure. Route 5 East was closed at Tifft Street for some time because of a disabled vehicle. The road has since reopened.

Earlier Saturday, there was a crash that impacted Route 219 North, at Route 179, for some time. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
