This guy nearly went for a swim, stopping perilously near a holding pond after slipping off the ramp from southbound I-494 to eastbound I-394. Use caution on all ramps and bridge decks, and on the roads as the snow is starting to fall in the west and south metro.
Meanhwile, the trip between downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis on westbound 94 has hit the 25-minute mark, mostly due to a crash at Cretin Avenue taking out the right shoulder. Ahead, it's a stall just outside the north end of the Lowry Hill Tunnel.
Other new incidents include a wreck on southbound Hwy. 169 at Excelsior Blvd. and two crashes on northbound 35W between Hwy. 13 and Black Dog Road.
Our car fire is still taking out the left lane on southbound Hwy. 100 at 50th Street. This drive has been a disaster all day, so avoid this area if possible.
