Maryland State Police have responded to more than 700 accidents since Friday, when the first of two blizzards hit the region, said spokesman Greg Shipley.
More than a third of the accidents included personal injuries or required vehicles to be towed.
But none of the accidents were fatal.
“This is an unprecedented storm period,” Shipley said. “The accidents have correlated to reflect such.”
Prince George’s County Police Department spokesman Henry Tippett called the lack of fatalities a blessing, and credited the snow with deterring deaths.
“Because of the snow, people can’t speed,” he said.
Shipley said the accidents occurred with more frequency than in a normal week, but were not concentrated in any specific area. He said the majority were caused by people driving vehicles not equipped to handle the hazardous conditions.
“We urge everybody to really evaluate whether they have a reason to drive,” Shipley said.
