It wasn't icy anywhere else. I live 30 miles NW of Ft Worth, and it was smooth sailing all the way into town. They had a shower move through there and it went to hell in a matter of minutes.

I don't think all were speeding. Some of those big trucks in the video, moving that fast, was pure momentum. All of that weight... I would imagine trying to stop/slow down, will just push them forward. Videos made me a little sick to my stomach. Glad none of my family was out in it.

They are now confirming 6 dead. I wonder if it will turn out to be one of those "flash freeze" phenomenons when the entire road goes from wet to frozen in an instant. That's the only way I can explain how so many cars were involved. Pile-ups happen but usually after the first few cars everybody sees it and is able to stop. They seemed to just keep ramming into the pile at close to full speed. Those pics of cars stacked 3 high are incredible

I just saw a couple of videos on messenger with 18 wheelers slamming into the stopped cars and going up and over them, that couldn't go anywhere. Absolutely horrible and you can tell why there are casualties seeing that.


Prayers up for those caught up in this.

90% of people drive in it just fine. It's the 10% that don't understand physics you gotta watch out for. Lot of times they drive Mustangs. In fact, if you see a Mustang, I would get away from it as quick as possible. It's not IF they will crash, but when they will crash.

Honestly, just go slow and you will be fine. The ground temp is warm enough, the only ice will be on overpasses. Now, if you are worried about the other morons on the road doing the speed limit, then yeah, I would let them get out there and darwin themselves.

I/m pretty sure that area has a hill. People were piled up on the downside of the hill. People coming up the hill didn't see them until they crested the hill & were now going downhill. No way to stop because the downward side was all ice.
That white car on top of that pile looks like the luckiest there.
Sad deal & sending prayers.

We drive in it quite a few times a year. It's not ideal but if you GO SLOW and plan to leave with plenty of time, you should be ok. Don't break hard, keep space and turn slow.

4X4 doesn't help with ice.

1. No way in he!! would I get on the road in these conditions unless it was an absolute emergency.

2. take the day off work or show up later when/if the roads improve. I dont understand putting your life and others lives at risk. Most of us dont know how to safely drive in these conditions.

3. The speed at which some of these vehicles are traveling is unsettling.


Not judging others and praying for all involved, but dang...watching these videos just makes me ill.

Iíd prefer the roads to be covered solid. At least people are creeping along then. When itís just the bridges and overpasses cars are flying then lose it when they hit their brakes or donít let off the accelerator when they get on a bridge. Have seen multiple examples the last 3 mornings.
