Winter Travel Headache Across Southern Twin Cities – 11/15/2022

Light snow and falling temperatures resulted in several slick spots across the southern Twin Cities this evening. Several vehicles lost control and went off into the ditch, with at least one more significant injury accident occurring at the off-ramp from Hwy 77 onto southbound I-35E, where a car rolled into the ditch. MnDOT crews were busy salting and plowing area roads to counter the slick conditions developing across the region. Around 117 accidents and 64 vehicle spin-outs occurred between noon and 9 PM on November 15, 2022, according to the Minnesota State Police.
