MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The drive home from work got dicey for many drivers navigating slick roads Thursday evening.

Memphis Fire Department reported a 16-car pileup that closed Austin Peay at James Road around 5:30. Six people were taken to emergency rooms, two in critical condition. A MATA bus at the scene helped people keep warm.

Around the same time, our Corie Ventura caught this car sliding into a traffic backup on the Interstate 55 bridge from Memphis to West Memphis. (see below)

A tractor-trailer jackknifed on the Hernando DeSoto Bridge, just under the Arkansas sign, causing a major backup on Interstate 40 west.

The westbound lanes into Arkansas were closed and video showed the truck and trailer blocking all lanes.
