Several traffic collisions have been reported in the St. John's-metro region, as roads are snow covered and slippery from the first winter snowfall for the region.
Two people have been taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries following a single-vehicle crash off the main road in the Goulds area of St. John's.
A female driver appears to have lost control, with her vehicle flipping off the road near the Robert E. Howlett Highway.
A woman also received minor injuries in one of two accidents this morning — within feet of each other — on Pitts Memorial Drive in slippery road conditions.
The woman was able to walk to an awaiting ambulance.
The accidents occurred in the west-bound lane near Ruth Avenue. The first accident caused minor damage to a pickup, while the second accident occurred as one vehicle slowed down near the first accident causing another vehicle to skid and go into the median.
Road conditions are snow-covered and slippery, and traffic in the west-bound lane was obstructed while crews cleared the accident scene.
Environment Canada forecasts about five centimetres of snow in the St. John’s region before mixing with rain later today.
