The advertised cold front is delivering high winds and temperatures are dropping quickly. The wet roads are starting to ice up, so hold down the speeds and hold on to the steering wheel.

Maple Plain fire crews and paramedics are heading to a crash on Wright County Road 11 at Lake Sarah Road. Extrication is needed to free passengers in the car.

Look for a car the slid off the ramp from Edgerton Street to westbound Hwy. 36.

On northbound Hwy. 169, a vehicle slid off the road and into the cable median at 49th Avenue N.  Southbound traffic is bound up from I-94 to Crosstown, a trek that is taking up to 40 minutes.
