What started out to be a fairly quiet weekend in the west central region of Minnesota, ended with state troopers keeping very busy.

Most of the activity started on Sunday after 1 p.m. when warmer temperatures, sunshine and some ground blowing snow started sticking and drifting onto the roadways making for several slippery spots.

Troopers in the west central region responded to 14 crashes, seven of which were rollovers with three resulting in non-serious injuries.

Troopers also responded to an additional 24 vehicles off the road and 21 motorist assists and calls for service.

Areas that involved rollover crashes included Fergus Falls, Barnesville, Dalton, Ashby, Holmes City, Wolverton and Wadena.

Motorists driving too fast for obvious poor conditions were most of the reasons cited for the contributing factors to the crashes, according to Jesse Grabow with the State Patrol.
