MADISON, Wis. -

Numerous crashes and slide offs are being reported around Madison after light snow and freezing temperatures have caused main roads to become icy.

Madison Streets Superintendent Chris Kelly said his department has 32 trucks out salting main roads in preparation for the morning rush hour.

Cold temperatures and icy roads are also causing problems in other parts of the state. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is reporting numerous accidents along Interstate 94 in Racine and Kenosha counties because of the weather.
