(KPTV) - Slick road conditions caused quite the mess for morning commuters on Monday.

Several crashes were reported across southwest Washington and northwest Oregon.

Drivers were advised to plan some extra time during the morning commute.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn tweeted that troopers have responded to 52 crashes since 4 a.m., with 34 of those crashes in Clark County.

Beaverton police tweeted about several crashes that officers responded to Monday morning.

Portland police responded to a crash at around 5:43 a.m. at North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and North Gertz Road.

Police said the driver was attempting to put his seatbelt on when he lost control of the vehicle and went about 50 feet down an embankment. The driver was ejected through the sun roof.

The driver was found a short distance from the vehicle and was able to walk toward medical personnel. He was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.
