INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A winter storm that brought freezing rain, sleet, rain and snow to Indiana produced a flurry of crashes on Indiana roads.

Indiana State Police say they responded to about 150 crashes during a 24-hour period ending Monday afternoon.

Fort Wayne police say they worked about 50 crashes between midnight and 1:30 p.m. Monday.

WANE-TV reports a burst of snow shortly before Fort Wayne’s morning commute laid down an additional inch or two of snow. Many schools initially on two-hour delays decided to close for the day.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dave Tucek says about one-tenth of an inch of ice fell across central Indiana counties that were under an ice storm warning. He says the highest ice accumulations were about two-tenths of an inch in Tipton and the Lafayette area.
