A driver lost control of his pickup in a weather-related accident in Aberdeen Friday night.
The driver of a black Toyota Tacoma was turning left onto 15-501 North, in front of the CVS Pharmacy, when he lost control of his vehicle due to the slippery street. The truck slid around and off the right-hand side of the road overturning onto the grassy area behind the former Radio Shack building.
