Spinouts, crashes still happening after snow leaves MN roads a mess

The snow storm caused at least 208 crashes this weekend.

As Minnesota digs itself out of the snow that Saturday's storm dumped across the state, the toll it took on the state's roads is starting to become clear. 

With snowfall up to 6 inches in some places — including at MSP International Airport, which reported 5.6 inches — hundreds of cars either spun out or wrecked on Minnesota roads this weekend.

As of Sunday morning, 208 cars have crashed since noon Saturday, with 183 spinouts, three jackknifed semis and 22 injuries. Luckily, none of those injuries was described as serious, and no fatalities were reported. 

That's according to the latest tweets from the Minnesota State Patrol:

The most recent data from the Minnesota Department of Transportation indicates much of — if not most of — the state's highways are at least partially covered, with many roads described as completely covered.

MNDot maps also show crashes scattered across the state. 

Here's a look at the snowfall reports from around Minnesota as of 7:45 a.m:

  • 6 inches – Westbrook
