After several crashes happened on Christmas Eve throughout Douglas County, roads remain slick in spots on Christmas Day.

A few "black ice" patches were reported by drivers on Interstate 94 between St. Cloud and Osakis. One driver said she saw at least 12 vehicles in the ditch.

Drivers should slow down, allow themselves extra time and be careful out there.
