JOSEPHINE CO, Ore--  Police are investigating multiple car crashes right now.

Rural Metro Fire says part of the problem is slick roads. The past 24 hours have been wet. The fire department says people were not slowing doing.

Most of the crashes didn't have injuries, but a couple were more serious. A driver of a pick up drove into a berm. Firefighters had to cut the roof off to get the driver out. Another driver had to go to the hospital after rolling over on Williams Highway. 

The fire department says this is a good reminder that when it rains you need to slow down and pay attention to the road.
