Weather causing havoc for Lubbock drivers

KCBD has sent crews to cover a number of weather-related accidents this morning, including a rollover accident on Hwy.114 and County Road 1300, and a multi-car pile up on the Marsha Sharp Freeway. As of 10p.m. on Monday Lubbock Police reported more than 120 accidents in less than 24 hours.

We've got reports of a single car rollover on FM 41 and Hwy 87 and a three-vehicle accident on the N. Loop and Slide Road.

Police report that 29 year-old Adrianna Pesina who is 7 months pregnant, was driving a black SUV northbound on Hwy 87 near FM 41, lost control of her vehicle and rolled. She has been transported to a Lubbock hospital as a precaution.

So far out of all the accidents, there haven't been any serious injuries reported. DPS says most of the accidents have been caused by drivers driving too fast on the icy roads.

Police and other authorities are urging to people to stay off the roads, but if you absolutely have to make the trip then to make sure you have a winter survival kit in the car. Take things like blankets, water, flashlights, lighters and warm clothing in case your vehicle is stranded. If there are multiple accidents it could take tow truck companies hours to reach you.

Keep watching KCBD NewsChannel 11 for the updates on accidents and injuries throughout the day.

Remember to exercise caution as the snow continues and watch for icy conditions on bridges and overpasses.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
