SPOKANE, Wash. -- Snow created difficult conditions on Inland Northwest roads Wednesday.

Authorities responded to multiple collisions and slide-offs all morning. 

One collision created traffic issues on eastbound Interstate 90 near the Broadway exit.  Washington State Patrol troopers said the driver of a Ford Escort was going too fast for conditions, lost control, and was T-boned by truck.  Troopers said both drivers were traveling around 40-45 mph, which was likely still too fast for the slick roadways.

Snowfall was expected to continue through the day with additional accumulations of two-four inches possible.  Snow was also expected to continue Thursday.
