Icy roads slow traffic

Some accidents, late starts for schools

ST PETER — Road conditions were icy this morning, which resulted in many school officials letting their students come in a few hours later than  usual. St. Clair closed school today.

Two people suffered minor injuries when the vehicles they were driving collided in the north bound lanes of Highway 169 a few miles south of St. Peter about 8 a.m. today.

Victoria Hough, 51, of Mankato was driving a 2005 GMC north on Highway 169 when she lost control of the vehicle and it crossed the median into the southbound lanes, then crossed back into the northbound lanes. The vehicle collided with a 2011 Dodge Ram driven by Daniel Buss, 36, of Lake Crystal.
