CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER FOR ROAD SPINOUT CRASH
After getting our first taste of snow back in October, the first real winter weather is impacting roads and travel conditions on Monday. According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, most roads across the state are covered or partially covered with snow as of 10:30 a.m.
In addition, KARE 11 reports crews began treating ramps, overpasses and bridges around 3:30 a.m. However, it is a big job and takes time to complete. Unfortunately, salting roads doesn’t prevent all slick spots. Therefore, it’s important for motorists to drive slow, stay patient and create space between other drivers and plows.
KARE 11 reported dozens of minor crashes and spinoffs throughout the Twin Cities metro. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Monday, there were 566 crashes around the state. Of those crashes, 46 resulted in injuries, one of the injuries being fatal.
Earlier this morning, a crash on southbound Highway 169 south of Interstate 494 created some serious traffic delays. According to Bloomington Fire, a vehicle crashed into the side of a semi-truck, and the driver was hospitalized. And on Interstate 694 near Columbia Heights and Fridley, traffic was slowed to a crawl Monday morning in both directions, and two crashes were reported in the area near Highway 65.
