MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – We didn’t get a lot of snow Tuesday morning, but the timing of it was just right to create a huge traffic mess around the Twin Cities metro.

The snow, about one to two inches of it, starting falling around the metro at about 4 a.m., and by 6 a.m. as many were heading to work for the day, there were slippery conditions everywhere. The Minnesota State Patrol said that by 8 a.m., there were 100 crashes statewide, including 12 that involved injuries that were non-life threatening.

There were also 88 vehicles that have either gone into a ditch or gone off the road. There were no fatal accidents reported, but authorities are reminding motorists to slow down and allow for extra time to get to where they need to be.
