Drivers were faced with another snowy and slick commute Friday morning.

Light snow continued to fall overnight, leaving freeways and highways wet with some slick spots.

City streets and ramps were slippery and snow covered.

The state patrol reported troopers handled nearly 60 crashes statewide from 5 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. Friday.

There were also at least 90 reports of spinouts. 10 injuries were reported, none were serious, according to the state patrol.

One crash brought traffic to a standstill on 694 eastbound at Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills. Traffic was backed up for at least two miles, all the way to I-35W.
    
One vehicle ended up in the ditch. There were injuries reported in the accident.

All lanes of westbound I-94 were also blocked near Albertville due to a jackknifed semi. At this point it's unclear if anyone was hurt in this incident.
