TARRANT COUNTY (CBS 11 NEWS) - Emergency responders in Fort Worth and all across Tarrant County answered hundreds of calls regarding vehicle accidents on icy roads Sunday.

Looking down the I-30 corridor, traffic has been slow for most of the day. Stranded vehicles and slow driving created traffic problems.

The need for caution remains throughout the night. Remnants of Sunday’s sleet is icing over on roads, making for treacherous conditions.

Even first responders had a hard time navigating, with Fort Worth police and fire responding to over 300 weather-related accidents.

Sharron Neal of Fort Worth police said officers responded to 92 major accidents and 123 minor accidents.

Those accidents all happened despite TxDOTs sanding of roads and per-treating bridges and overpasses.

Preparations are already underway for Monday morning.

But even as TxDOT tried to get ahead of the conditions, accidents happened, like this rollover in Arlington that police tweeted about.

The wreck was blamed on icy conditions.

Many North Texans are saying they’re ready for a real, warm spring break after the recent flux of cold weather.
