(KNSI) - Wednesday's quick blast of snow was just enough to make for messy roads.

The Minnesota State Patrol responded to a number of crashes all over the area including one on eastbound highway 10 at County Road 33. Just before 11 a.m., crash investigators say a Chevy Venture and a Chevy Silverado were both going south on Highway 10 south of County 33 when both drivers lost control. The Venture slid into the ditch first, followed by the Silverado, which hit the Venture. No one was seriously hurt.

Icy roads are to blame for a crash on Highway 15 in Sauk Rapids a short time later. The Minnesota State Patrol says about 10 after 11 Wednesday morning, a 20 year old woman was driving her Jeep Grand Cherokee north on Highway 15 when she couldn't stop for the light at County Road 29. She hit a GMC Yukon which was going west on 29. The driver of the Yukon suffered non life-threatening injuries.

About 20 minutes after that, a person was hurt in a rollover crash on Interstate 94 in St. Joseph Township. The Minnesota State Patrol says a Ford Explorer was heading east on 94 just west of County Road 2 when the driver hit an icy patch and went into the ditch and rolled. The 28 year old driver suffered non life-threatening injuries.
