ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Classes in Alaska’s largest school district have been canceled because of treacherous road conditions following an overnight snowstorm.

Anchorage school spokeswoman Heidi Embley says the district decided to cancel classes Monday due to icy road conditions that became worse as the morning commute got busier.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports (https://is.gd/Xjlv6D) police dispatchers had reports of 11 accidents and two more with injuries. Almost all of those were in town. Dispatchers had reports of more than 25 other vehicles in distress, and almost all of those were on the Glenn Highway.

Police spokeswoman Anita Shell says people are “slipping, sliding and crashing into each other.” The National Weather Service website says 2.3 inches of snow fell overnight.
