The wintry mix Amarillo experienced yesterday contributed to 17 traffic accidents.

The Amarillo Police Department was busy yesterday.  Roads were covered with a thin layer of ice and looked deceptively easy to navigate.  Unfortunately looks were deceiving and led to many automobile accidents on Wednesday.

One school bus(without any children) and one fire truck were victims of the poor weather conditions.

The conditions led to some overpasses being closed until TxDot came out with some sand.
