Nearly 200 crashes plague New Jersey roadways on Sunday

Almost 200 crashes were reported in New Jersey in a span of twelve hours on Sunday. 

New Jersey State Police responded to 188 crashes between 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. on December 3rd as a result of a winter storm that yielded snow, sleet, and rain. 

According to NJ.com News, one of the multiple wrecks involved a jackknifed semi truck, which led to partial lane closures, but did not result in any serious injuries. 

Luckily, temperatures began to rise in New Jersey on Sunday afternoon, improving roadway conditions throughout the state. 

As of 10:45 a.m. on Monday, all winter weather advisories had been removed.

We have trimmed back the Winter Weather Advisory as temperatures rise this afternoon behind this morning's wintry weather.
