Several car crashes in and around Lincoln were reported Saturday afternoon and evening as Nebraska football postgame traffic coincided with accumulating snow on roads.

The Lincoln Police Department said more than 40 accidents had been reported in Lincoln as of 7 p.m. 

At about 2:45 p.m., multiple crashes were reported along Interstate 80 just outside of the city. 

Crashes on I-80 at mile markers 392, 393, 399, 401 and 410 were reported within an hour of the conclusion of Nebraska's win over Michigan State. Several accidents were also reported along U.S. 77 and other highways in Lancaster County.

As of 7 p.m., none of the reported crashes resulted in serious injuries.

City crews started treating Lincoln streets at about 2:30 p.m., but slick spots were common as temperatures dipped into the low 20s.

The National Weather Service predicted snow accumulation in and around Lincoln would be between 1 and 2 inches.
