Recent Blizzard Keeps Mankato DPS Busy

Posted: Updated:

The Mankato Department of Public Safety says they were kept busy with crashes in the city limits from the blizzard late last week.

The snow started Thursday, but after it was done the department recorded 32 motor vehicle accidents from 12:01 Friday morning until 11:59 Saturday night.

Patrol Commander Dan Schisel says people were simply driving too fast for the conditions.

He says there are still some slippery roadways out there, but hopes the sun coming out will help the street department put down the product to start melting the ice.
