One person was transported to an area hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Another crash, a block south, near Wolcott and 13th, took place at approximately 8:20 am. According to reports from the driver on the scene, she was northbound on Wolcott, and was unable to stop due to slick roads. She said she then guided her vehicle into a traffic pole, to avoid colliding with Eastbound traffic on 13th street.

No injuries were reported in the second crash.

Recent winter weather throughout the state has left slick roads, and reports of several accidents.
