Massachusetts State Police are responding to over 70 crashes
The icy conditions along Route 290 in the Worcester area have caused more than 70 cars
and three tractor-trailers to crash since 6:45 this morning.
Crews are towing damaged cars to two nearby parking lots to
open the roadways.
The Lowell Connector also closed for about 45 minutes due to
icy conditions and crashes. That roadway has since reopened and been treated.
About 30 people have reported minor injuries.
