FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Snowfall during the Wednesday morning commute made for some slick conditions for motorists.

In Fort Wayne, there were a total of 33 crashes. Three of those had injuries, but they weren't serious. Most of the crashes that occurred were along I-69.

"About the hours of 6am and 10am this morning is when the police agancies here in Allen County, Indiana State Police, Fort Wayne Police, and Allen County saw majority of the vehicle crashes," Sergeant Ron Galaviz said.

There was also a crash on US 30 and Doyle Road near New Haven that resulted in one death.

"How we drive in the Winter weather conditions causes crashes. The snow and ice, contributing circumstances, yes. No question, but by themselves do not cause crashes because if it did, everyone would crash," he added.

That crash involved a car and a semi.

A rollover crash was reported on I-69 just south of the Illinois Road interchange.

Other crashes were reported near the intersection of Ardmore and Engle Road, and at the intersection of Airport Expressway and Lower Huntington Road.

Sergeant Galaviz said cautious driving goes for anytime of the year whether it's fog or flooding conditions. 

How you dirve is a huge factor.

For all the drivers wondering, so they can avoid getting caught up the next time, you can expect similar conditions Saturday.
