BOONE COUNTY (Feb. 21, 2014) – Drivers should watch out for black ice as they hit the road Friday.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office sent out an advisory telling drivers that black ice was on roads in the county.

U.S. 421 was closed for a short time because of a series of crashes between 100 S and 200 S. It has since reopened.
