WOBURN, MASS. (WHDH) - Law enforcement officials are warning drivers to take it slow on the roads after overnight snow created slick spots in some areas.
Troopers responding to a reported crash on Interstate 90 westbound just before exit 13 across from the Natick Service Plaza Wednesday morning found a car with significant damage and a tractor-trailer that had gone off the road.
There were no reported injuries but the right lane was closed.

Troopers also responded to a serious crash on Interstate 93 southbound at the Interstate 95 cloverleaf on the Reading-Woburn line around 9:45 p.m. Tuesday and learned that a 2016 BMW X5, operated by a 43-year-old South Boston woman, struck a 2018 Toyota RAV4, driven by a 61-year-old Quincy man, from behind, state police said.
The BMW went off the roadway into the grass infield, struck a large concrete light pole foundation and a guardrail on the edge of the on-ramp before going over the guardrail and down a wooded embankment, state police added.
First responders performed CPR on the South Boston woman before she was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The Toyota rotated out of control following the impact but came to a rest in the left travel lane. The driver was uninjured.
In Lancaster, a driver suffered serious injuries after a crash left them trapped inside their vehicle.
It took firefighters nearly 55 minutes to remove the driver, who was transported to an area hospital.
