More Than 400 Crashes & Spinouts On Minnesota Roads Amid Saturday’s Snow

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There were more than 400 crashes and spinouts Saturday on Minnesota roads as an Alberta clipper snow system swept over the state.

The Minnesota State Patrol says that from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. there were 204 crashes and 236 spinouts statewide. In those crashes, 19 people were hurt, one of them seriously. There were no reported fatalities.

The crashes came as a light snow system blew over the state. A winter weather advisory was in effect Saturday night for parts of southwestern and south-central Minnesota until midnight.

The system left roughly an inch or two of snow across many parts of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities. Some areas saw as much as 5 inches stack up, according to WCCO Weather Watchers.

More snow is in the forecast for Sunday night.
