RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia State Police responded to nearly 200 calls for service Sunday morning as a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain fell around the region.

Troopers in the Richmond Division responded to 125 traffic crashes and 22 disabled vehicles from 8 a.m. through noon, according to Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Vick.

Vick said that non-life threatening injuries were reported with six of the crashes.

"The majority of the crashes involved damaged vehicles only," Vick said. "We remind motorists to be careful this afternoon and evening, to slow speeds, increase the following distance between yourself and other vehicles and to wear your safety belt."
