UPDATE: Kilgore Police Department:

KILGORE (KYTX) - Kilgore Police Department is seeing icing on bridges and overpasses this morning. A four vehicle crash due to ice was worked by Kilgore Police Department traffic on the overpass at Highway 259 North and the loop.

Over the next few days we will see additional light icing on bridges and overpasses especially in the evening, night and morning hours.

Officials ask drivers to please slow down and drive safely and to be aware of all bridges and overpasses you travel over. If possible, limit your travel over the next several days.

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Authorities are working several traffic wrecks on at least three major Gregg County roads.

According to Sheriff Maxey Cerliano, Gregg County sheriff's deputies have cleared traffic on Texas 31 between Longview and Kilgore, after a series of wrecks forced authorities to shut down the roadway. Cerliano said deputies and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers are also working wrecks that have occurred on Interstate 20 near Kilgore.

It is not known if anyone was injured or transported to an area hospital at this time.

Longview Police Department spokesman Kristie Brian said officers worked at least three wrecks in South Longview in the past hour. A two-vehicle wreck was reported just before 8 a.m. on I-20 at the city limits. Less than ten minutes later, another incident was reported, she said. Details are sketchy, but at least six vehicles were involved in either one or two wrecks on I-20 between Estes Parkway and Eastman Road, she said. At about 8:30 a.m., another wreck was reported on Estes Parkway at Loop 281 about one-half mile north of I-20.

Brian said that, at this time, she is not aware of anyone being transported to area hospitals for wrecks that occurred in Longview.
