ABERDEEN, S.D. — Some schools in northeastern South Dakota started classes late on Monday after snow and ice over the weekend.
The American News reports that bad roads led to a number of vehicles in the ditch in the region and at least two rollover accidents. The Highway Patrol reports that icy road conditions contributed to a three-vehicle crash east of Brookings on Sunday afternoon that killed a 20-year-old Minnesota woman.
National Weather Service reports show that several inches of snow fell in parts of northeastern South Dakota and southeastern North Dakota on Sunday. Some areas got half a foot.
Transportation officials issued a travel alert for southeastern North Dakota, telling motorists they could still travel but warning them that driving might be difficult.
