The Minnesota State Patrol recorded 600 crashes statewide from Saturday to Sunday morning as wintry weather hit --- and was expected to tear across several states. There were 62 injuries, none of them serious, and no fatalities, the state patrol said, noting an additional 227 cases of vehicles spinning out/going off roads across Minnesota. It’s a “slap of reality” after a mild November, National Weather Service meteorologist Dave Schmidt in La Crosse, Wisconsin, said. The wintry weather mostly moved out of the Plains overnight and pushed into Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.
