MADISON, Wis. -

Slick roads from overnight snow caused traffic delays in some areas of southern Wisconsin Tuesday morning.

Another crash on the eastbound interstate was reported at about 9 a.m. at mile marker 177. It was reported as a two car crash with injuries.

Another crash with injuries was reported about the same time on Todd Drive under the Beltline Highway.

Crashes were reported at about 8 a.m at North Shore near John Nolen Drive, John Nolen Drive at Blair Street, Franklin Avenue at Mason Street in Madison and at Highway 19 at County Road CV in Burke Township.

More than two dozen slide-offs were reported in Dane County since 6:30 a.m.

A car rear-ended a school bus on Mineral Point Road just west of the Beltline Highway at 7:23 a.m. There were no injuries.

One school district, New Glarus, opened late because of the road conditions.
