Snow and ice lead to a nightmare morning commute as dozen of accidents occurred across Wichita-area highways leading to the closure of several major routes in the city for several hours during the morning. Cars were scattered all over the area as many slid off roads and crashed. Snow totals were less than 2-inches in the city, but the ice made for an extremely hazardous commute.
