FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A water main break in south Fort Worth forced emergency crews to shut down a four-lane road early Wednesday morning, and could have a big impact on traffic surrounding a nearby elementary school.

The break was first reported at around 1:30 a.m. along East Rendon Crowley Road, near Oak Grove Road, close to the borders of both Burleson and Mansfield. According to a police call, water was spraying all over four lanes of traffic. This created a dangerous situation on Wednesday morning, as temperatures dipped down below the freezing mark.

It did not take long for the entire roadway to be covered in ice. Officials were able to shut off the water at about 3:00 a.m. and then fix the break. A sanding truck arrived to help make the area safer, but there are still many slick spots along East Rendon Crowley Road.

The break was located close to Ann Brock Elementary School, part of the Burleson Independent School District. Drivers who will be at the school to drop off children on Wednesday morning will need to be extra cautious.

Crews are not yet sure who the broken pipe belongs to, as it is located so close to three North Texas cities.
