State police in New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont said they responded to over 500 crashes and slide-offs from Friday through Saturday as snow and ice coated roadways.

Some areas of northern New England saw over 2 feet of snow, and thousands of people are still without power.

New Hampshire State Police said from 5 a.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday, they responded to a whopping 237 calls for service involving weather related incidents such as crashes and vehicles off the road statewide. They shared one photo of a rollover in Stewartstown.

Maine State police said they responded to 183 crashes across the state since 5 p.m. Friday. They said only minor injuries were reported.

One of those accidents was on Route 26 in Woodstock, where a tractor trailer that was driving too fast for the weather conditions failed to properly negotiate a turn and wound up wedged between a house and a garage.

Vermont State Police said they responded to 85 crashes on Friday alone, most of them in southern Vermont. Nineteen of those crashes involved injuries.
