From Monday up until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, there were 350 crashes on the state’s roads, according to the state patrol.

The slick conditions from winter weather caused some of the crashes, but it’s unknown exactly how many were directly related to the snow.

The state patrol said 33 of the accidents resulted in injuries, but none serious.

In Austin, there were a few fender benders and cars in the ditch, but Austin police said it was pretty quiet.
