(KMSP) - After record-breaking warmth came through Minnesota, winter started swirling through the state.
For one of the first times this season, snow plows were out in force throughout the state. Minnesotans saw a mixture of snow, rain and slush. As the mixture accumulated on the roads, it created slippery conditions for drivers.
According to Minnesota State Patrol, statewide from 8 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. there have been 121 vehicle crashes, 10 which ended in injuries. There was one fatal crash, which occurred in Benson, Minn. A reported 60 vehicles also spun out or went off the roads. One truck got stuck in the median on Highway 10 between Dilworth and Glyndon.
