8:25 a.m. update: Spinout on 494 in Newport

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 7, 2014 - 8:26 AM

Roads remain slick and reports of crashes and spin outs continue to roll in.  The latest is a crash in which a pickup truck driver lost it on eastbound 494 near Hardman Avenue. The front end hit the concrete median. The median won.

In Maple Grove, a driver hit a guard rail on the ramp from Hemlock Lane to westbound 94. Ramps are especially treacherous this morning.

Other incidents include a crash on southbound 35W at University Avenue.  Northbound Cedar is still trying to recover from an earlier wreck at Hwy. 13.  There is a new crash near 127th Street, so expect delays coming out of Apple Valley.
