According to the Minnesota State Patrol, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., troopers reported 99 crashes with four, not life-threatening injuries and one fatal in Faribault County.  

There were also 119 vehicle spins out/off the road incidents and six jackknifed semi-trucks. 

Law enforcement is responding to accidents across Minnesota Tuesday night as continued snowfall makes for slippery road conditions.

As of 5 p.m., the Minnesota State Patrol said troopers had just nine reports of crashes but 17 other vehicles had spun out or run off the road.

Travelers are urged to slow down and drive cautiously during the snowfall.

Some areas of the state could get as much as five inches of snow from Tuesday's system.
