Delaware State Police have responded to a statewide total of 32 vehicle crashes with one involving minor injuries and 34 disabled vehicles since 2 a.m.

Police say the majority of the incidents involved single vehicles losing control and spinning out or traveling off of the roads due to motorists not being able to navigate the difficult conditions; roads continue to be snow covered, slippery and treacherous.

In Sussex County, there have been six crashes, no injuries and 15 disabled vehicles; in Kent County, there have been eight crashes, one reported with minor injuries and seven disabled vehicles; and in New Castle County, there have been 18 crashes, no injuries and 12 disabled vehicles.

Police say they are ready and available to patrol, assist disabled vehicles and manage roadway incidents and hazards for the duration of the event.

Troopers urge all motorists who must travel to use extreme caution as road and weather conditions may change rapidly over the course of the event. Motorists should be prepared for snow covered and slippery roads, along with moderate winds and limited visibilities which make driving conditions difficult. Use caution while driving when approaching intersections and off ramps, especially bridges and overpasses. Remember to reduce speed and increase following distance between vehicles. Allow ample time to reach your destination, allow extra space between vehicles, and keep vehicle headlights on to increase visibility.
