As the season’s first snow storm moved out of the state, there were almost 200 crashes on Minnesota roads. Lt. Eric Roeske of the State Patrol said that of Tuesday evening there were 172 crashes and 140 spin-outs, which injured 30 people and killed two.
Another bitterly cold day across much of the state. In northern Minnesota, overnight lows fell as low as 35 below zero. And winter weather advisories are out for a large part of southern Minnesota from Worthington in the southwest to the Twin Cities area.
This weekend’s snow was a rude awakening for many drivers. And lots of people will find themselves in body shops in the coming days.
The wet, sloppy mess outside has caused several accidents across the state, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
