A light dusting of snow Thursday night combined with below-zero temperatures has created patches of ice on the roads, which are causing crashes across the Twin Cities metro Friday morning.
Numerous crashes, spinouts and rollovers have been reported, some causing delays in the morning commute, MnDOT's website shows.
The Star Tribune's The Drive tweeted as of 7:15 a.m. there were more than 50 incidents on area highways, including a vehicle that got caught on the side of a bridge over the Minnesota River.

Slick roads Thursday night also led to crashes, including at least one that left a 16-year-old boy with life-threatening injuries.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol's report, the teen was hurt when the car he was in, driven by a 16-year-old girl, lost control and spun out on the icy freeway, coming into contact with a semi-truck.
The crash happened just after 8:30 p.m. on Interstate 35W northbound near 76th Street in Richfield.
Neither driver was injured.
The National Weather Service in the Twin Cities is reminding drivers to leave extra space between you and those in front of you and drive slowly.
