A traffic camera on I-76 near Belmont Avenue shows westbound traffic slowed to a crawl amid a Saturday morning dusting. The snow, combined with bitter temperatures, caused a number of multi-car crashes on I-76, including three involving more than eight cars.

A slippery mix of bitter temperatures and a coating of powdery snow on Saturday morning led to a number of multi-car accidents across the Philadelphia region.

NBC10 reports that Montgomery County Dispatch and Pennsylvania State Police responded to at least 15 accidents.
