Snow covers Henrico and areas west of RVA

Posted: Updated:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Henrico and areas west of Richmond got a healthy dose of snow, with at least three inches in Henrico.

A thick blanket of snow covered most of the major highways. During the later evening, blizzard-like snow turned to sleet.

The worst of the traveling may still be to come, when the snowfall freezes over.

Virginia State Police Troopers responded to more than 200 calls for service in the Richmond area, during the early evening hours, alone. At least 175 of those calls were car crashes, and 39 responses were for disabled vehicles.
