A slow-moving storm churned through the Northeast on Tuesday, bringing drenching wind-blown rain to coastal areas, wet snow inland and a wintry mix to the New England states.

The storm made for a sloppy, slippery Tuesday morning commute in southern New England, where state police responded to dozens of crashes and spinouts caused by icy roads, some involving their own cruisers.

Nine passengers on a commuter bus involved in an accident in Connecticut were hospitalized, and one person was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on an icy upstate New York highway.
