MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The first wintry morning in the Twin Cities on Wednesday resulted in more than 100 crashes.
The Minnesota State Patrol says there were 115 crashes and 28 spin-outs in the metro. In those, 21 people were injured, but none fatally.
Outside of the metro, there were 30 more crashes, with 2 more people injured.
The snow that fell in the Twin Cities wasn’t much more than a dusting. Still, temperatures dipped below freezing, creating icy conditions on many roads.
Following Wednesday’s crashes, the State Patrol is reminding motorists to buckle up and drive at speeds that respect weather conditions.
