State Troopers responded to a total of approximately 191 crashes. Of those crashes, 44 resulted in injuries and two fatal crashes. The two fatals claimed the lives of five people. Troopers also responded to an additional 224 vehicles that had slid off the highways and required assistance needing many tow trucks.
