Over the last 24 hours, many regions of Minnesota have been experiencing very foggy weather along with icy roads.  Minnesota State Troopers have responded to 92 crashes all over the state during this period ending at 10 a.m. on Feb. 3.

Fourteen of those resulted in injuries; three of those were reported as serious.  Three of those crashes also involved fatalities.
