Dangerous Road Conditions Cause Fatal Crash

A fatal crash in Webster County among several crashes in the Ozarks due to dangerous road conditions.

In Springfield crews working tirelessly too to get people out of cars who are trapped and clean up fender benders after today's snow fall.

Missouri State Highway Patrol confirmed one fatality in a 12-vehicle crash on I-44 near mile marker 138.

The highway patrol also announced that eastbound lanes at mile marker 138 are closed due to the same accident.

At least two spots along eastbound I-44 in the Ozarks were shut down earlier from pile ups along the interstate. 

The 106 mile marker is now shut down and drivers are being directed to exit at Marshfield 100 .

I-44 at the 186 is completely shut down after a multiple car and semi pile up.

At one point of the afternoon, there was a crash at almost every exit of highway 65 in Springfield. 

Go Patrol spotters continue to report slick roads along Highway 13, eastbound 60 outside Rogersville headed towards Seymour is at a stand still in both directions.

Authorities want to remind drivers that just because they don’t see white on the ground doesn’t mean it isn’t slick. Most of the roads seem to have black ice on them.

Troopers are advising people just to exchange information if your involved in a crash and no one is injured because crews are busy responding to injury crashes.
