Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- Roads around the metro were just as bad, several accidents shut down I-94 east outside of Moorhead.

One vehicle flipped when a driver traveling west near the 20th street exit. Was going a little too fast around noon today.

Authorities say the driver was from the east coast, and wasn't used to driving in these conditions. Luckily no one was injured.

Lt. Chuck Backes with the MN State Patrol says, "MN DOT just did an outstanding job of getting this freeway and highway 10 shut down last night so we didn't have to deal with all of that. It's a lot safer for the public when the roads are shut down in weather like this. A lot easier on us, a lot easier on our dispatchers."

The Minnesota D-O-T shut down I-94 between Moorhead and Alexandria.
