Kingsford Public Safety Department officers respond to a three-vehicle crash on Breitung Avenue near the Kingsford Post Office this morning. No injuries were reported.

Slippery roads were factors in two minor accidents this morning.

In Aurora, Wis., a vehicle hit an electrical pole on Pemenee Drive near Crooked Creek Lane. In Kingsford, three vehicles were involved in a collision at the intersection of Breitung Avenue and Hooper Street.

Authorities reported no injuries in either accident.

According to Zika, the snow was expected to subside this morning. Though there may be some flurries tonight, no more snow is predicted for the local area through the weekend, he added.
