ST. CLOUD -- Stearns and Benton Counties are reporting only a handful of crashes and spin-outs today as a result of the snow. None of the crashes in the two county area appear to involve injuries either.

Stearns County Lieutenant Jon Lenz and Benton County Chief Deputy Troy Heck are asking you to take it slow on your evening commute.

They say it appears Monday's snowfall was a wake-up call for many drivers to slow down and increase their stopping distance.
