Car Accident lawyers Slippery Road



Heavy snow impacted roads in southern Minnesota Friday morning. There were multiple vehicle spinouts, crashes and jackknifed semis. A snowstorm passed through the state Thursday night into Friday morning, with totals coming in higher than expected.

Some parts near the Minnesota-Iowa border were expected to see up to 6 inches. However, there are localized reports of 8 inches and more in some areas. Most of the roads south of the Twin Cities were covered or partially covered with snow during the 8 a.m. hour, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. That includes major roads such as I-35, I-90, and Hwy. 169. A jackknifed semi could be seen on Interstate 35 in the southbound lanes, just north of Faribault. Another was reported near the Minnesota-Iowa border.

Not surprisingly, the Minnesota Department of Transportation advised drivers to “slow down” when driving in the southern part of the state. Most icy road crashes could be avoided if people would just slow down.
