A few accidents have been reported across the Wichita area, some sending drivers to the hospital with serious injuries.
Dispatchers said some of the accidents were weather-related. Slick roads caused a car to roll off the Kellogg near the Seneca exit Sunday morning. The car rolled over, injuring the driver.
A 16-year-old girl was also seriously hurt after the vehicle she was driving rolled over near 77th St. South and Seneca.
Three accidents in Sherman county forced officials to close I-70 in Goodland Saturday night. Troopers said the vehicles hit patches of ice on the highway, causing the accidents.
The storm left about 1 to 3 inches of snow across Kansas. Most roads are snow-packed or icy, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Drivers are encouraged to allow plenty of extra time to arrive at their destination.

If you thought the snow was bad, just wait for the cold. Some of the coldest air of the year is expected to linger through early next week. Lows will bottom out on Monday morning between 5 above and 10 below from southwest to northeast. Wind chills of 10 to 25 degrees below zero are expected, too.
The National Weather Service says, "Very cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills are moving in behind the system." Nearly half the nation will experience temperatures dipping to 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
