Road conditions on hwy 27, just south of Palouse, land three cars in a snow bank on Jan. 3.

COLFAX — Blowing snow and crashes kept law enforcement busy Tuesday following an overnight storm.

The Whitman County Sheriff’s Office responded to more than 20 crashes during Monday’s snowstorm, Sheriff Brett Myers said. The Washington State Patrol responded to at least 10 more.

After yesterday’s storm, many cars were left stuck and remain stranded.

All reported crashes were handled within a 36 hour window, Myers said. There were no injuries reported.

The vast majority of roads that shut by snowdrifts were re-opened by Whitman County Public Works snowplow crews, officials said.
