A mixture of freezing rain, snow and sleet has delayed openings for more than 200 schools in New Hampshire and has made for some slick driving conditions.

Several accidents have been reported. WMUR-TV reports in Londonderry, a car rolled over and ended up in a swamp along Route 28. The car was partially submerged, but all three people inside were able to get out. They were treated for minor injuries.

In Boscawen, a pickup truck and a car collided on Route 3. The truck driver was taken to the hospital to be treated for a cut to his head. The car driver suffered a broken leg. One of her passengers, who is pregnant, was taken to the hospital after complaining of back and chest pain.
