Icy conditions on roads cause crashes, spinouts across southeastern Minnesota

Posted: Updated:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Authorities responded to multiple crashes and spinouts across southeastern Minnesota Monday morning-- including 24 in the city of Rochester-- after an early-season snowfall caused icy conditions on roadways across the area.

At about 8:30 a.m., MnDOT listed many of the many roads in the region as being in 'difficult' driving condition, with slippery stretches and icy patches due to the ice and snow.

Among other crashes, crews responded to a jackknifed semi-trailer which had blocked traffic along the eastbound lanes of I-90 near Stewartville.

There were also reports of multiple crashes along Highway 52 north Rochester, near the Elk Run interchange near Oronoco, as well as reports of spinouts and cars in the ditch along Highway 52 and Highway 14 in the city of Rochester.

Authorities said between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday, crews responded to 19 weather-related crashes in the city of Rochester.
