BOLTON, Vt. (AP) — State police reported multiple crashes across Vermont after a late-season snowstorm slickened highways.

In one crash reported early Thursday, a van carrying 14 people crashed on Interstate 89 in Bolton, causing multiple injuries, but police said none of the injuries were life threatening.

The north-bound van crossed the median and overturned in the southbound lanes due to the icy conditions, police said. The southbound lane was closed for about 90 minutes.

Other crashes were reported on interstates 89 and 91 and elsewhere in the state. A plow truck rolled over on Interstate 91 in Barnet. The driver was plowing snow from the edges of the interstate when the truck loaded with salt got into a muddy area off the side of the roadway, sunk into the mud and rolled onto the passenger side, Vermont State Police said. The driver was not not injured and Interstate 91 south was shut down for a short time while the truck was pulled back onto its wheels, police said.

The weather that brought the snow is expected to move out Thursday with more seasonal temperatures forecast for Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
