JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

I-220 was a dangerous place to be early Saturday morning, with multiple accidents that occurred there.

Overnight, black ice formed on many roads and bridges in our area.

Beginning around 7 a.m. Saturday Jackson police responded to numerous wrecks and had to shut the interstate down in both directions.

Accidents were reported at I-220 and Watkins Drive, Industrial Drive and Medgar Evers Boulevard.

We also heard calls for emergency crews for wrecks in Warren County and on Highway 61 in Madison County.

Black ice is basically smooth ice that's almost impossible to see.

In all, we're told nine accidents occurred in Jackson.
