The evening rush hour became the slush hour as lite snow fell across the Twin Cities metro area of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, MN.
This video was mainly shot in the city of Bloomington, MN about a mile away from the Mall of America on Old Shakopee Road as drivers found that the slushy wet snow that was falling had turned the road into a slick mess of ice that made driving on it very dangerous.
Total Run Time: 3:15
Clip 1 A white SUV wagon tries to take the corner but ends up hitting the curb on the other side of the road.
Clip 2 A driver loses control after and slides across the road as another car is driving towards him. The first car tries to speed up and you can hear the engine rev up but all he ends up doing is smashing into a telephone / street light post. The second car he was trying to avoid ends up hitting the first car. Funny note, the guy that hit the pole, lights up a smoke right after the car crash. All parties were ok but declined to talk to the camera.
