Dozens of Crashes Reported in Woodbury During First Snowfall of Season

There were no serious injuries reported Monday morning.

More than 30 crashes were reported in Woodbury as of 10:20 a.m. Monday morning as the city saw the first significant snowfall of the season.

No one was hospitalized as a result of the crashes, said Woodbury traffic officer Scott Melander.

Often, motorists were sliding through stop signs or traffic lights, Melander said. Reports started coming in at about 8 a.m. and Woodbury police had received at least three dozen calls.

“It’s been a busy morning,” Melander said.

The Woodlane Drive hill at Valley Creek Road was too icy to drive up at one point this morning, but city crews were out salting the roads, Melander said, and that street is now drivable.

“Drivers need to realize that they do need to slow down and drive for the conditions,” he said.

One note from Kristen on our Facebook page: On the upside, everyone I saw is smiling and friendly this morning, helping each other push their cars across the lanes and up the hills. And lots of friendly faces at the (closed) post office this morning--we were all heading in because there appeared to be no line!
