PERMIAN BASIN - The roads are clear now, but on Monday, wintery rain made a mess of the morning commute.

Just as the rain moved into Midland, Loop 250 turned into an icy hazard for cars and trucks.

Almost as soon as the rain started, so did the emergency calls.

Police and ambulances were called to several multi-car accidents from Highway 191 to south I-20.

No serious injuries were reported, but there were big delays as workers and authorities cleaned up the mess.
