MnDOT to icy commute complainers: 'It's still winter, folks'

The Minnesota Department of Transportation said Monday night’s snow compacted down and iced up on the roads overnight, resulting in a slow and slippery commute. The Minnesota State Patrol reported 208 crashes, 155 vehicle spin outs and 11 jackknifed semis between 9:30 p.m. and 9:30 a.m. Eighteen of those crashes resulted in injuries.

In the coming days, thermometers in the Twin Cities are set to drop below zero, making for brutal conditions for people who have to go outside but also creating potentially hazardous driving conditions.
