WFPD Responds to More Than 50 Accidents

Wichita Falls Police responded to around 58 minor accidents and one injury accident on Monday, all related to the Winter blast that pummeled Texoma overnight.

Drivers we spoke with said they were aware of the risks of driving on the slick roads, but that staying safe was just a matter of slowing down. One driver told us, "Definitely drive slower and if you're in a hurry try and leave earlier." TxDot also recommends getting your car checked out to make sure its ready for the harsh weather ahead.

Even though the roads were dangerous, many residents told us they enjoy finally having some December weather. One person said, "I like the snow it's actually the first time it feels like Christmas." Another resident agreed, adding,  "I love the snow, I love to see the snow this morning. Now it's starting to feel like Christmas."

Temperatures will get down into the teens on Monday night, meaning roads could be slick again on Tuesday morning.
