5:30 a.m. update: Crashes keep coming

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 7, 2014 - 5:35 AM

The icy cold has left enough glaze on the road to create dangerous conditions on the roads and on ramps, bridges and at intersections. In the first hour of the rush hour the State Patrol and local police have responded to numerous spin outs and crashes.

Among the latest is a rollover wreck on Hwy. 212 just west of Hwy. 41 in Chaska. A vehicle landed in the center median.

On westbound Hwy. 55 at the intersection of Hwy. 110 near the Mendota Bridge, it's a crash blocking a lane.

A spin out has police busy on the ramp from eastbound 494 to southbound Hwy. 61 in Newport.

Look out for a crash on westbound 94 at Hwy. 280.

A vehicle is facing the wrong direction after spinning out and smacking a cable median on southbound 494 at Rockford Road.
