TULSA -- Almost two inches of snow fell overnight and created some treacherous conditions for drivers.  

Paramedics from EMSA said they responded to 44 crashes since slick conditions began late Friday night. They also treated four people for cold exposure, including three who had to be taken to the hospital. 

Wreckers towed away several vehicles Saturday morning after drivers slid off the Garnett exit ramp from the Broken Arrow Expressway. One driver even struck a police cruiser, which caused the officer's vehicle to slide down a hill. Fortunately, none of the accidents caused any injuries. 

The snow is expected to melt away by Saturday afternoon, as the temperatures keep climbing throughout the day.
