Two cars slid into each other on I-75 near the Detroit Avenue exit about 1:20 p.m. No injuries were reported.

Sylvania Township police said one car slid off the road shortly before 1:30 p.m. on McCord Road and Central Avenue. There were no injuries.

At 2:30 p.m Toledo was under a Level 1 snow emergency, which means police responded to only injury accidents.
