BOSTON (CBS) — Driving on roads in Massachusetts Tuesday morning was slow going. The snow started to fall around 7 a.m., just in time for people to start heading out on the road.

Soundoff: How Was Your Ride This Morning?

The the westbound lanes of the Mass Turnpike in Charlton closed before 9 a.m. because of a jack-knifed tractor trailer. State police said all lanes of the turnpike were re-opened for travel at 9:10 a.m. and that there were minor injuries.

Traffic was backed up going the other direction on the Pike, as well. For the most part, drivers were going about 15 to 20 miles an hour, sometimes getting up to 30 miles an hour, but only briefly.
