KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The snow that fell in and around Kansas City left roadways slick in spots for drivers Wednesday. FOX 4 has three crews checking out road conditions all over the metro and they will be periodically streaming their drive. Watch any of the livestream players to get a look.

FOX 4's Nicole DiAntonio reported that she had seen several minor car accidents.

Around 4:15 a.m. a car spun out and hit a street sign along I-35 near Gardner.

"Cars sliding everywhere," Michael Trammell with Lenders Choice Recovery & Tow said. "I mean turning corners, hitting curbs. They were everywhere. I mean it was like ice-skating."

On Tuesday across 13 counties in North Central Missouri, there were 375 calls for service, 200 crashes, 85 motorists stranded and 25 people injured.
