Route 3A in Quincy was temporarily closed near Bridge Street after an MBTA bus hit and knocked down a utility pole.

The U-Haul crashed through a fence at the business.

Various crashes and spin-outs have also been reported in other cities and towns.

Conditions have forced drivers to stop and clear their windshields.

But Quincy Police are warning drivers to never stop in the middle of the road to do so, like one person was caught on video doing.

“If you must clear snow from your car, pull over and do it safely,” police said.
