The Teton Pass on Wyoming Highway 22 between the Idaho state line and Wilson has opened after being closed for an hour and a half Monday morning due to hazardous driving conditions.

Several accidents occurred, along with vehicles unable to move due to slick conditions, Teton County Emergency Management said.

Although Wyoming Department of Transportation's sander trucks and emergency services cleared the roadway, authorities said motorists should use caution, as the road was still slick and there was still low visiblity.
