MIDLAND/ODESSA - The icy conditions have also caused a number of spin-outs and crashes in the Basin on Friday.

Odessa Police say they've responded to 55 crashes since Thursday within the city limits alone.

Officials in Midland have reported 123 accidents since Thursday through Friday afternoon.

We've also been getting calls from drivers on highway 385 about multiple roll-overs happened close to Andrews.

If you're planning to go over any railroad crossings, there's some good news. All of the crossings in the Tall City are open. They were closed earlier in the day after the crossing arms locked into place due to the ice.

The roads are still slippery.

You're asked to be careful and stay off the roads if you can.
