Dangerous Weather Conditions

Amarillo turned into a winter wonderland Wednesday night, and with that comes a number of fender benders, and dangerous road conditions.

Newschannel 10's Marissa Bagg has a look at how things were outside.

Bridges like the ross-mirror overpass are the most dangerous. There were at least two accidents on the bridge Wednesday evening, one involving a police unit.

Thankfully no one was hurt, but at least one man was arrested. Officials closed the overpass for a short time while the scene was cleared.

It was a busy night for Amarillo police citywide, they say slick roads have led to at least two dozen other accidents, but no major injuries.

TxDOT tells us crews were out sanding bridges all day Wednesday preparing for this snow, and they will continue to work through the night. They want to remind drivers to steer clear of plows and sand trucks, and of course drive safely.

We've also been told that I-40 west of Tucumcari is back open - icy conditions in the Land of Enchantment forced crews to close the highway earlier Wednesday afternoon.
