MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Low temperatures and overnight snow caused multiple road closures across the Bluff City area.

We’re getting reports of a multi-vehicle accident near Jackson Avenue and Chelsea Avenue. There’s also an accident near Jackson Avenue and Scott Street causing heavy traffic.

Ice on the bridge in the area has caused a major crash. It’s unclear if anyone was injured at this time.
