TULSA -- Police responded to several wrecks Saturday morning because of slick conditions on major highways. 

Three crashes happened along U.S. 169 in Tulsa. Crews responded to wrecks near 11th, 51st and 91st Streets. No major injuries were reported from any of those collisions. 

First responders also went to a wreck along U.S. 412 near State Hwy. 88 by Inola. It's believed that all the wrecks were caused from the light drizzle freezing on elevated surfaces, like bridges and overpasses. 

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation listed the highways in Rogers and Tulsa Counties as being in "severe" condition early Saturday morning. Crews are advising drivers to be extremely careful and give themselves plenty of time while traveling.
