MINNEAPOLIS — The falling weekend snow has caused a headache for some drivers. 

The Minnesota State Patrol is reporting that between 9 a.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday there were 238 crashes on Minnesota roads. 

Only about 30 of those crashes involved injuries and only one involved serious or fatal injuries.
