Light snow took out 180 four-wheelers and one semi truck in Minnesota this weekend


Light snow caused more than 100 crashes involving many cars and one semi truck in Minnesota over the weekend. 

The series of accidents happened across the state of Minnesota from 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 25th and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 26th. 

According to KROC News, 19 of the 114 crashes resulted in injuries, but none were considered serious. 66 reports of fourwheelers sliding off or spinning out along roadways were also recorded, along with reports of one jackknifed semi truck. 

One of the injury crashes occurred on Highway 14 in Waseca County, after a 21-year-old female motorist slid out of control and crashed into the median ditch. She was transported to a hospital with non life threatening injuries. 

Most of southeastern Minnesota accumulated around 1 inch of snow between Saturday and Sunday afternoon, while other parts of the state saw only trace amounts. No more snow is predicted to fall until the upcoming weekend, reported KTTC.
