Road conditions for many state highways are slick from ice on Sunday morning, according to the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department's weather map.

A culmination of light rain that occurred Saturday night and ice that melted throughout that day produced a refreezing of ice on roads, the department's spokesman Danny Straessle said.

"There are several trouble spots on Interstate 30, especially in the Benton area, [and in] east Arkansas," Straessle said. "Roads are continuing to be slick. We've been out all night addressing that, and we'll continue to work throughout the day."

Traffic is currently at a standstill on Interstate 40 eastbound between Carlisle and Hazen, according to the department's live traffic map.

A state police dispatcher said that authorities are still clearing up debris from an accident that occurred about 8:56 a.m. No injuries were reported in the wreck.

Other areas in central Arkansas had slow-moving traffic Sunday morning, including the Interstate 430 bridge in both directions near Cantrell Road and the Interstate 430/630 interchange near Shackleford Road, the map showed.
