Snow-covered and icy roads have created hazardous driving conditions across parts of Great Falls and the surrounding area. There have been several reported slide-offs and minor crashes; there have not been any reports of serious injuries so far.
One of the incidents happened along I-15, when a woman and her baby escaped with no serious injuries after their car slid off the highway and rolled, landing on its roof..
It happened near mile marker 300 between Vaughn and Power just after 10 a.m. Both the mom and her 8-month old baby were properly restrained in the vehicle. Responding agencies included the Montana Highway Patrol and Teton County ambulance.
More widespread snow is expected to begin Tuesday evening. Snow will continue to pile up through Saturday and temperatures will remain in the teens and 20s for highs.
Most of our area can expect to see 4 to 8 inches of snow through Friday. Areas along the Rocky Mountain Front will likely see more than a foot of snow.
