As the snow continues to fall, more and more accidents are occurring out on the slippery roads and the State Patrol is starting to report some alarming numbers.

KBJR-TV is reporting that slippery road conditions contributed to about 265 car crashes between midnight on Monday to 11am Tuesday across Minnesota, according to the State Patrol. 36 of those crashes involved injuries.

The State Patrol is reporting 4 fatal crashes on Monday due to the snow covered roads, including a fatal accident in Aitkin County where the driver was killed along Highway 210 after they lost control of their car and slid into oncoming traffic.

Wednesday promises another day full of heavy snow, so one could reasonably assume that there will be more accidents.  If you don’t have to travel, may be best to just chill out at home.  If you do have to venture out, make sure your car is cleared of snow before you go and take your time.

Stay safe out there and get ready for the deep freeze once this snow finally stops.
