Authorities say a heavy snowstorm has caused a traffic collision in Wisconsin that killed two people and more than 400 minor crashes in Minnesota.

Several inches of accumulation were reported in Wisconsin's Bayfield County Saturday when the two vehicles collided. Both drivers were killed and a passenger was hospitalized.

Minnesota was socked with more snow, with some areas in the Twin Cities areas reporting 11 inches of snow. There were no fatalities or major injuries there, although the Minnesota State Patrol says 45 of the 401 crashes reported as of 4 p.m. involved minor injuries.

Northern Wisconsin could see 4 to 6 inches Sunday while parts of Minnesota could get an inch or two Sunday.
