BELL COUNTY - There have been a number of wrecks in Bell County due to icy roads Friday morning.

Road conditions in Bell County have deteriorated, with bridges in all parts of the county icing over. DPS is reporting that troopers and deputies have responded to over 25 crashes on roads in Bell County.

Temple PD is reporting ice on roads with ice on all bridges and overpasses. US-190 near Nolanville is shut down due to bridge icing.
