Posted: Updated:

Icy roads are causing a number of accidents Monday morning around the metro.

Southbound 71 Highway was shut down Monday morning due to icy road conditions. 

Several vehicles went off the road shortly before 7 a.m. in separate incidents at 85th Street and Gregory Boulevard.  The highway was reopened about 7:30 a.m.

No serious injuries were reported in the accidents. 

Missouri Department of Transportation road crews came out to the scene to put salt down on the freeway.
