MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Since heavy snow (again) started falling Monday night, there’ve been nearly 400 crashes and spinouts on Minnesota roads.

The Minnesota State Patrol says that between 10:30 p.m. Monday and 10:30 a.m. Tuesday there were 181 crashes and 297 spinouts on the state’s snow-caked roads.

In those crashes, 11 people were hurt, but none seriously. One of the crashes involved a state trooper.

The snow swirling over Minnesota Tuesday was the latest in an unusually snowy February. In the last eight days, the Twin Cities has seen more than 20 inches of snow fall on the metro.
