ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Department of
Transportation says the last two days have seen nine accidents
Five of the crashes were in the Twin Cities area and the other
four were in southeastern Minnesota. The agency is reminding
drivers to take extra care around snowplows.
Drivers should stay at least five car lengths behind plows at
all time, far from the snow cloud. Plow operators make it a habit
to pull over occasionally when it's safe, to allow traffic build-up
The agency also warns that snowplows turn or exit frequently
with little warning, and may at times pass over center lines.
