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.
