Bad Roadways | VideoSarahbeth Ackerman | 11/3/2012
"Today, Minot Central received reports of 30 injuries and property accidents and one fatality," said Minot police officer Tim Gates.
With all of the crashes, police issued a No Travel Advisory this morning in the city of Minot.
While the roadways seem pretty bad, most local North Dakotans are not too worried about the weather.
"Well I don`t mind the weather, the temperature is the main thing," said Minot resident Marlen Bratvood.
They say this is just another day in North Dakota.
"Well being in North Dakota, I guess it`s nothing to me but I can see with all the out of staters around that it could be some trouble for them," said Minot resident Michael Peterson.
Police feel it`s just the first significant snowfall of the year and many people just need to get adjusted to the roads.
"We won`t have 30 like we did today, that`s a pretty high number, it will continue there`s gonna be bad snow storm where somebody`s always gonna need to go to work..something`s gonna happen and people aren`t gonna listen and their gonna travel anyway," said Gates.
Minot police have responded to several accidents and the city street crews are placing sand on the roads. They are asking drivers to not travel unless it is absolutely necessary.
Update: the amount of injury and property accidents has increased from 30 to 46. Minot police are asking drivers not travel unless it is absolutely necessary. The travel alert is still in effect until tomorrow morning.
