A 50-year-old Oakdale man was seriously injured Saturday morning after pulling over to check on the drivers from a minor crash, the Minnesota State Patrol says, as icy conditions played a role.
The rain and snow mixed together is causing problems on area roads. The Minnesota Department of Transportation says icy conditions are making travel particularly difficult in southern Minnesota.
Extremely icy conditions had closed a significant section of westbound Interstate 94 Friday night in northwestern Minnesota, the State Patrol said.
In Minnesota, winter driving conditions can go from perfect to hazardous in a matter of minutes. Cold temperatures combined with ice and snow can make for difficult and dangerous commutes, so make sure you are prepared when the winter weather arrives this year. Here are a few driving tips to help you prepare for the cold and snowy months ahead.
Freezing rain is expected to move across the Twin Cities this morning and afternoon.
Round one of the weather double-header left the Twin Cities quite soggy with heavy snow west and north. Round two is a stronger storm that will follow a similar path.
