Police are reminding drivers to slow down, the snow falling along with the cold temperatures is leading to a slippery layer on many roads.
Route 8 southbound near exit 27 was closed after a rollover crash Saturday morning. Connecticut State Police said there were minor injuries.
A second crash earlier today on I-84 in Newtown left the driver with no injuries but a car up on a concrete barrier.
#CTtraffic: Snow is falling in several areas across the state, and it might not be heavy or sticking to all surfaces, but..... with these very low temperatures roads still may be slick. Reduce your speed.— CT State Police (@CT_STATE_POLICE) December 30, 2017
