CATOOSA COUNTY, Georgia(WDEF) - Constant snow fall mixed with windy conditions made the morning commute very dangerous for many North Georgia residents.

Georgia state troopers spent most of the morning tending to weather related crashes along the interstate.

On I-75 just one mile south of Ringgold. Troopers say the driver of a semi was traveling southbound when he drove on a patch of ice that caused his rig to crash into a hill. Rescue crews had to use the jaws of life to free him.

About ten miles south of Dalton, snow and ice along Southbound I-75 caused a multi-vehicle crash. There were no reports of any serious injuries but lots of delays.

On Northbound I-75 between Dalton and Tunnel Hill, a Catoosa County deputy was seen coming to the aid of a driver who's SUV slid off the road and collided head-on into a tree. Despite the damage, there were no injuries reported.

For many motorist, snow caused slower than normal travel along I-75.

"It's pretty much at a crawl. It's a slow pace down here so everybody seems to be taking it easy and being safe," said commercial truck driver Zach Hamilton.

In Dalton, there was less problems on the road. Authorities told WDEF there were very few reported crashes within city limits because the streets were heavy treated long before the snow arrived.
