New Jersey got hit with more snow than initially expected yesterday and drivers were impacted the most with some commutes home lasting 6 to 7 hours. State Police reportedly responded to nearly 1,000 crashes and helped almost 1,9000 drivers. Keep in mind that number doesn't include the thousands of calls local and county officials responded to.

According to NJ.com at least two fatal crashes occurred during the storm. One involved a 61-year-old woman after her car got stuck on train tracks in New Providence. She died after the car was hit by an NJ Transit train. The other fatal accident involved a 52-year-old man who's car was struck by a pickup truck.

Many drivers took to social media to express their frustration at the lack of salt, plowing, and the inaccurate weather forecasts that predicted no more than 4 inches of snow would fall.
