Police responded to 25 crashes during Thursday's snowfall.

Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said the accidents happened between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. Police typically respond to around 10 crashes during that time frame on a normal day, Clemens said.

One accident included 11 cars near 18th Street and Southeastern Avenue. Clemens said there was a "domino effect" after the initial crash.

No one was seriously hurt in any of the crashes.

Police encourage drivers to drive cautiously during snowfall as roads can get slippery quick.

The Sioux Falls airport received 0.9 inches of snow Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
