Minnesotans should be used to cautious driving conditions, but the freezing rain this weekend allowed for an exception.
The Minnesota State Patrol responded to 376 crashes between 10 p.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday from the Metro area. They responded to a total of 438 crashes statewide, KSTP reported.
Nearly 80 crashes involved injuries, with one fatality near Litchfield.
The woman who died was Kimberly A. Mead, 44, of Willmar, Minn. She was ejected from the vehicle she was in and died at the scene, the Pioneer Press reported.
There were also 135 spinouts reported. More than 200 crews laid salt, sand, and liquid Sunday to prevent such icy roads.
