Storm Causes Messy Morning Commute

Commutes were an additional 30 minutes for most people heading to work this morning, according to MN DOT.

The Monday morning commute was slow going after Sunday night’s storm. The system dumped about a foot of snow on metro roadways. According to the MN Department of Transportation website, eleven accidents occurred in the metro between 6:30a.m. and 7:30a.m. 

One crash on 494 and 394 blocked the left shoulder to oncoming traffic. This was just one of the 637 accidents that occurred between 9:30p.m. and 6:00a.m. this morning. Of those accidents, 63 involved injuries and one was fatal.
