Friday commute full of spinouts, crashes

March 01, 2019 10:11 PM

This latest round of winter weather meant a tough commute for many drivers in the state. 

"Today has been pretty slippery, usually it's a little more sticky but yeah, sliding all over the place," said Mario Matias, from Arden Hills. 


Along Interstate 35 northbound between Wyoming and Stacy, police estimate between 35 and 40 vehicles were involved in spinouts and minor collisions in the area, some of them ending up in the ditch.

Nobody was injured.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS talked with a man who had the task of driving from Mankato to Duluth on Friday, and he says what would typically take about four hours is taking him double that in these conditions.

"It's been really horrible actually, there's a lot of snow. People are really slow. I've been having a lot of problems with my car trying to get it steady, the roads are really not good," said Yael Ikoba, from Duluth.
