NEW YORK (WABC) -- Snowfall that turned to rain and sleet caused dangerous conditions on roadways for some drivers in the Tri-State area.

A car headed southbound on the Palisades Parkway in Rockland County went off the slick road and overturned.

The incident happened near exit 16 in Stony Point.

Officials say the driver, who had minor injuries, was the only person in the car.

Another major roadway that was covered with snow was the Saw Mill River Parkway in Westchester County.

The New York State Thruway Authority even warned about slick spots that could slow the evening commute.

In New Jersey, one stretch of Skyline Drive in Ringwood was shut down due to an accident -- even with treated roads.

It's another reason why road crews warn to still take it easy.

Ringwood Borough Manager Scott Heck calls it "nuisance" snow.

"This is going to be a 20-hour nuisance storm, and unfortunately, you got to deal with at it comes," Heck said. "Different elevations of town have ice, different elevations of town have snow."
