CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire State Police are urging drivers to stay off roads if possible as icy roads have caused multiple accidents around the state.

As of 5 p.m., state police have responded to 82 reported crashes and 51 vehicles off the road. They said rain was turning to snow on interstates 89 north of Sutton and 93 north of Concord.

Police also reminded drivers that wet roads could turn to black ice with dropping temperatures. That’s what happened Tuesday morning, when some vehicles slid off roads, or into one other. State police said a driver going too fast for the conditions hit a trooper’s cruiser parked in the breakdown lane on Route 16 in Newington. The trooper, who was investigating a crash, suffered a minor injury.
