GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- First responders across Northeast Wisconsin were busy Christmas Eve with a number of weather related car crashes.

Officials in Outagamie County responded to 30 crashes since Midnight Sunday.

In Brown County, 172 east and west bound lanes at Wisconsin 32 along the Fox River Bridge, were closed for about two and a half hours while authorities attended to three separate crashes in the area.

The crashes happened around 1 p.m. Sunday all within minutes of each other.

One crash involved three cars. Authorities say no injuries were reported in any of the crashes.

The Green Bay Police Department says officers responded to only four weather related crashes in the city on Sunday.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is also warning people about slippery road conditions near Milwaukee.

The DOT tweeted a video of one crash which took out a traffic camera.
