The mix of winter weather wreaked havoc on Minnesota roads again this weekend, WCCO reports. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says as of 6:00 a.m. Monday, the State Patrol responded to 326 crashes, including 42 with injuries and one serious injury, since Sunday morning.

More than 600 vehicles also spun out or went off the road.

The Pioneer Press says no one was injured after a State Patrol squad car was struck when a pickup truck spun out on I-694 in New Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

Several highways in central and western Minnesota remain closed Monday until further notice, including I-94 between Alexandria and Moorhead, U.S. Hwy. 10 from Moorhead to Audubon and U.S. Hwy. 210 from Breckenridge to Fergus Falls, the Star Tribune reports.
