(KCEN) --- The icy weather in the more southern areas of Central Texas has caused over 200 accidents between last night and this morning.

Area police and EMS crews were busy responding to hundreds of crashes and multicar pileups just north of Austin.

Local authorities have responded to 214 crashes since midnight.

More than 130 of those happened after 7 a.m.

A 20-car collision stopped morning traffic just off I-35 near Parmer Lane, according to Austin-Travis County EMS officials.

In addition, Round Rock police have responded to 70 accidents between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m., four involving Round Rock patrol cars.

With a surge of car crashes, police are asking residents to stay off the roads, especially with overpasses and bridges icing over quickly.
