If it is a holiday, be warned...that is now the only time we get snow in Minnesota.

  • Halloween.  Check.
  • Valentine's Day.  Check. 
  • Christmas Ok, that was the one holiday where we expected to see the fluffy, white snow on the ground but Mother Nature let us down.
  • St. Patrick's Day.  We shall see!

Unfortunately, when that snow falls, cars start spinning and sliding and cause accidents.  It is a given in Minnesota.  Well, one of those accidents from the Valentine's Day snowfall was caught on camera and as you watch the video, I can almost guarantee you'll ask yourself, "How did that person hit that car?".  And...then you will watch it again because you still can't believe it happened.

We know extra caution needs to happen when snow and ice are on the roads.  That is a no-brainer in Minnesota.  Accidents can still happen even when we are being cautious.  According to KROCNews.com, almost 500 crashes were reported from the snow that fell in Minnesota on Wednesday and Thursday.

One of the accidents that happened this week was caught on video and makes you wonder if someone was truly paying attention as they were behind the wheel.  Out of all the cars that are stopped on a road, a law enforcement vehicle is NOT the one you want to hit (especially as everyone else is avoiding it).

The Reactions on X (Twitter) Are Saying What Everyone Is Thinking
