Snow on Thursday caused problems on area roadways with several slide off’s and at least two crashes with injuries being reported.
Just before 2 p.m. a vehicle lost control on State Road 107 at County Road FF and struck a power pole. The driver 33-year old Jeremiah S. Burns and passenger 22-year old Melissa R. Hahn both of Wausau were injured in the crash but refused medical transport from the ambulance from Merrill that responded to the scene.
At 3:30 p.m. a two vehicle crash at State Road 17 and County Road G caused several minor injuries. A vehicle being driven by 40-year old Jessica L. Wunsch of Merrill was traveling east on County Road G when she turned in front of a southbound vehicle to go north onto State Road 17.
Both Wunsch and the driver of the second vehicle, 63-year old Daniel P.

Three minor children in the Wunsch vehicle were also checked for injuries, but all were treated and released.
