A pair of accidents were reported over the weekend, as heavy snow fell in Thief River Falls.

According to the TRFPD, Samantha Jo Cortez, 29, of Thief River Falls, was cited following an accident at the intersection of 4th and Kinney.

Barrett was also cited for DL Instruction Permit Violations.

No injuries reported in either accidents.
