Cars were slipping and sliding during the Thursday evening commute as motorists dealt with both more snowfall than was expected and a build-up of ice, creating a nightmarish scenario.

As a result, Connecticut State Police troopers were busy dealing with a rash of crashes, including one fatal incident.

In total, for the first snowstorm of the season, Connecticut Police received a total of 1,341 calls, 230 of which were involving crashes. There were two reported “serious injury accidents,” 10 “minor injury” crashes and one fatality.

“It’s the first snow of the season and the CT State Police would just like to remind all you Connecticut drivers to be careful out there in our roads,” police posted on Facebook. “Common sense, as always, prevails while driving in snowy weather. First and foremost, slow down on icy snowy roads.”
