SAN ANTONIO – Interstate 10 at the Kimble-Kerr county line has reopened following a pileup involving multiple 18-wheelers on Tuesday morning.

Kerrville police said the westbound lanes of I-10 in the area are open, though traffic is moving slowly.

Deputies in Kimble, Kerr and Kendall counties have dealt with multiple crashes on the highway due to freezing rain and ice accumulation.

Kerr County deputies have so far cleared three rollover wrecks, Kerrville police say.

Police said the hilly stretch of interstate between Comfort and Junction is prone to 18-wheeler wrecks when the road is covered in ice.

“Again we want to remind folks that the conditions on the interstate are always worse than in town,” police said in a Facebook post.

Police advised drivers to use caution on the roads and prepare for the possibility of being stranded.

Wrecks are being reported across South Central Texas as temperatures are below or near freezing. Freezing rain and ice accumulation are possible in the Hill Country.
