Drivers skid and slid all over the roads this morning.

Lubbock police reports responding to 170 to 200 since 2 a.m.

The majority of them were due to the icy conditions and occurred on Marsha Sharp, Loop 289 and I-27 causing on-ramps to shut down. Of those wrecks, 42 of them had reported injuries. Luckily, all of them were minor.

By noon today the crash volume had eased up.

Lubbock police advises on days like today, avoid bridges, overpasses and flyovers if at all possible.
