ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – A storm system moved through the region Tuesday, bringing wintry precipitation and gusty winds.

Road conditions were problematic even after the snow ended as the dramatic change in temperature led to flash freezing on paved areas. Anything that was remotely slushy or wet turned to ice, creating slippery widespread conditions.

According to Minnesota State Patrol, there was a total of 65 property damage crashes, 10 injury crashes, 64 off-road vehicles and 30 jackknife semis crashes in the Rochester area.

Minnesota State Patrol also said the majority of crashes Wednesday morning were jackknife semi crashes due to the high winds.
