MIDLAND - The wintry weather is already causing problems on area roads. Accidents have occurred across the area.

On Loop 250 near Thomason, a driver lost control, rolled over and came to rest right side up.

He ended up in the median but luckily wasn't hurt.

Right after that, police called for TXDOT to start sanding the Loop.

The City of Midland also closed Loop 250 for several hours on Friday evening but officials were working to reopen the roadway.
