Police Keep an Eye Out for Ice on Roads

CORPUS CHRISTI - There have been no reports of ice hazards on local roads, but we did find evidence of just how cold it got this morning.

Out along I-37 and Violet Road we found some road signs with icicles hanging off them. It's not something we're used to seeing in this part of South Texas. While they may be pretty to look at you sure don't want to be caught driving on ice.

Slick roads contributed to a rollover accident along Interstate 37 near McKenzie Road. The driver of a pickup says she was headed to work when an 18-wheeler cut her off and she ended up rolling her truck several times.

She was wearing a seatbelt and will be alright. Once medics checked her over she got a ride to work.

TxDOT and Corpus Christi police have been monitoring our roads all morning and so far there haven't been any closures. They do remind everyone, however, that you do need to slow it down on the wet roads.

TxDOT crews laid out sand along the Harbor Bridge this morning, just in case.

It got cold enough this morning for ice to form on some cars across in Portland. Just enough for folks to notice when they came outside to warm up their cars. Most ran back inside right afterwards to avoid the bitter cold.

Postal workers don't have a choice in the matter. They're prepared for inclement weather. One worker told us this is the first time he's worn gloves in a long time.

As for the ice, there was enough moisture and bitter cold for chunks of ice to form on the mast of our live truck at Whataburger field this morning.
