The snow was creating dangerous conditions, UHP told FOX 13 Friday afternoon, which resulted in several crashes near Beaver within just a few hours. Both directions of the freeway were closed at one point Friday evening, and northbound was closed for a few hours in that area.
No major injuries were reported.
