Crash along I94

This vehicle rolled in the ditch along I94 early Wednesday morning, November 27th.

After snow fell across nearly the entire state, driving conditions are challenging at best heading into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Waseca received 11 inches, Minnetonka nine-and-a-half inches, Annandale, Savage and Mahtowa got nine, M-S-P Airport is reporting eight-point-three inches, there's eight inches in New Prague, six-plus in Princeton and Rochester, and five inches in Duluth.  The State Patrol says there were 180 crashes statewide between 9:45 Tuesday night and 7:30 this morning (Wednesday).  So far, no serious injury or fatal accidents have been reported.

State Patrol Trooper Jesse Grabow says for those traveling along I-94 in West Central Minnesota, starting near Ashby, the roads are covered with some light snow & conditions are slick. Moving east along the freeway it gets worse as Troopers are currently out with crashes on I94 at Sauk Centre, Melrose & St. Cloud.  No injuries are associated with these crashes.  The State Patrol is advising drivers to please drive with caution, buckle up and slow down.
