The morning commute, mixed with some bad weather, caused a chain reaction crash on Thursday.
Highway Patrol says it's a problem that can be prevented.
There have been several car crashes in the last few weeks and Highway Patrol troopers say it can all be traced to one major problem with winter drivers.
"This is a classic example of over driving the road conditions," Highway Patrol Trooper Kristoff DeKramer said.
DeKramer was at the scene of a multiple car wreck on 26th Street Thursday morning. He says while the roads are not covered in ice right now, there are still slick spots that drivers need to be prepared for.
"If the roads are ever bad, you have to allow more following distance. So you can react for the car in front of you. In this case here, one car braked which caused a chain reaction of people not allowing enough distance and going in the ditch," DeKramer said.
Thankfully, none of the three drivers or their passengers who went in the ditch had any injuries.
DeKramer says the most important thing people need to do is slow down.
"Sioux Falls always has issues with everybody in a hurry. Everybody just needs to relax and allow more time to get to work," DeKramer said.
DeKramer wants to remind everyone to always buckle up, at all times on the road.
