Icy Bridges & Overpasses Causes Some Traffic Accidents

There were six wrecks this morning in Cherokee County, but by midday, most of the ice had melted on the major roads.

There was a little bit of ice left on bridges, but people seemed to be maneuvering just fine thanks to a light coating of sand. The Rusk Police Department was ready for the worst, but no major problems were reported. Now, they are turning their attention to tomorrow.

Assistant Police Chief Roy Cavazos says, "There's a little concern, if the temperatures gets low enough, of all this freezing.  We may have some icy roads tomorrow."
