Snow, Slick Roads Blamed For Dozens Of Accidents

The fast-moving overnight snowstorm left the Bay State with some very slippery roads Tuesday morning and is being blamed for dozens of car crashes across Massachusetts, including one fatality.

A 65-year-old Framingham woman was killed in a two-car crash in Gardner Monday night.

State Police are also investigating a nine-car accident on Interstate 93 near Quincy that left one person seriously injured.

Other crashes and spin-outs have been reported on Route 9, Interstate 495 and throughout Route 128.

National Weather Service meteorologist Benjamin Sipprell said there are two more weather systems due to hit later this week.

"We're looking at two disturbances coming up here, both of which have a possibility of delivering additional snow to the region. Still a level of uncertainty with those systems," Sipprell said.

Sipprell said there will be a brief warming period before more cold air moves in on Thursday.
