FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Sleet and snow are making for slushy travel on highways in western Arkansas.
State officials say highways are snowy south of Fort Smith and north of Mena, while motorists were plodding near evening Wednesday through slush on Interstates 40 and 540.
Transportation officials and state police say travel is slowed I-40 between Conway and the Oklahoma border, with more wintery precipitation on the way.
Authorities reported a number of minor accidents, mainly cars sliding into ditches after they went too fast through slick spots. No major injuries were immediately reported.
Safety officials urged caution on the roads and advised people in affected areas to not travel if possible.
Highway crews worked to keep major routes open.
