Cold and Dry, Teen Killed in Accident with Snow Plow, Condoms in Schools

Drier air is quickly building in and the few snow showers that were coming off of the lake with end this morning. Expect a cold and blustery, but dry afternoon and this dry period will hold into Friday before a fairly weak storm moves in on Saturday night. I expect that storm to bring a coating to an inch mainly south of Cleveland. Some lake effect snow will be with us Saturday night into Sunday.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, blustery and cold. Low: 23 Wind: NW at 10-20 mph

An 18-year-old woman was killed in an accident on I-71 in Cincinnati on Wednesday. The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says Jessica Galley, 18, of Mason, was driving on the southbound side of 71 when she lost control of her vehicle, crossed the median and hit cable barriers, causing her car to spin out of control. She then hit a plow truck on the northbound side of 71. The snow plow blade impacted the driver's side door of the car, killing the woman upon impact. It happened just south of Fields Ertel Road. The driver of the snow plow, Scott Wyrick, 46, was not injured during the crash. According to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, alcohol, drugs and speed are not considered to be contributing factors in the crash.

Some Philadelphia high schools are installing condom dispensers during winter break to promote safe sex and curb disease. The schools are installing the machines inside nurses' offices at 22 schools with the highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases in the city.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, teens account for about a quarter of all new HIV infections in Philadelphia. The condoms will be free to any student whose parent didn't opt them out of the program.
