AUSTIN, Texas – Icy conditions made for treacherous travel on Wednesday evening in parts of the Lone Star State.
Police said at least ten vehicles were stuck on an Austin-area flyover because of the ice on the freeways.
Emergency management encouraged drivers to avoid travel while officials treated roadways.
A winter storm produced rain and a variety of forms of frozen precipitation over Texas on Wednesday, and the threat is expected to continue into Thursday.
