Icy roads create havoc

A PEDESTRIAN has been knocked unconscious in Launceston's CBD, with police officers at the scene.

In a statement issued about 1.45pm today, police said the accident had happened in Cimitiere St and no further details were immediately available.

It is understood the incident occurred near the Spotlight department store.

Light rain that turned to ice has caused havoc on northern Tasmanian roads earlier today.

Tasmania Police Sergeant Nick Clark said there had been 22 car accidents between 7am and 9.30am, damaging cars but causing no serious injuries.

Sgt Clark said there had been five crashes at George Town and four at Travellers Rest.

Five cars piled up on Ecclestone Rd, a steep road in the Launceston suburb on Riverside, after brakes became useless on black ice.

Pedestrians also had trouble staying upright on iced-up footpaths.

Sgt Clark said such extensive black ice cover had not been seen in the north for many years.

He said motorists needed to be wary when light rain fell on very cold mornings.
