The first snow of the season created hazardous driving conditions early Tuesday throughout Central Missouri.

The dry, light snow that started about 5 a.m. coated the highway and caused numerous vehicles to slip off the road.

An accident eight miles south of Fulton on U.S. 54 left one car on its top.

Reports of accidents deluged the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Troop F, prompting the patrol to ask people not involved in injury accidents to write down the information and contact them later.

A series of accidents in Callaway County just north of the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City disrupted commuter traffic Tuesday morning.
