The late winter weather caught many Lubbock drivers off-guard Wednesday morning.
Lubbock Police Sergeant Jonathan Stewart said the police department responded to 113 wrecks this morning between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. According to Stewart, weather was a factor in many of the wrecks as the number was well above a typical morning.
Street Utilities Superintendent Kevin Lair said his department was on the roadways before the majority of morning commuters. He said they salted bridges, overpasses, and even streets where residents had mistakenly left their sprinklers on.
"I'm sure there were some people that didn't realize their sprinkler was on," Lair said, " nor did they realize they were going to wake up to snow this morning."
Sergeant Stewart said there were no major injuries from the wrecks this morning and the main area for wrecks were the South Loop, I-27 and Marsha Sharp Freeway.
