ROLLA, Mo. -- Icy conditions make travel hazardous on I-44 east of Springfield.

The Missouri Highway Patrol has worked several crashes on I-44 near Rolla, Mo. After MoDOT cleared one crash, another crash immediately happened. The steep terrain in the area is contributing to the difficulty.

Travel in the St. Louis area is dicey too. MoDOT reports several crashes on Interstate 270. A glaze of ice has fallen in the St. Louis area.
