JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The highway patrol responded to 29 crashes around mid-Missouri and several school districts closed as roads became slick with ice Thursday morning.

The Missouri Department of Transportations urged drivers to watch out for icy road conditions and slick spots. Drivers can check the MoDOT traveler map for the current road conditions. The map showed many state roads south of Interstate 70 as partly covered..

Several crashes were reported on Highway 63 due to ice.
