Makes you wonder what the distraction was that got him out of the ruts and into the ice.

Well it is called "Speed too fast for conditions" one of those conditions being that the driver of the car that started it all likely had his head up his .. er.. exhaust pipe (think about it)

Actually.. I have seen that kind of thing happen in the middle of summer.. Drivers with their head in said dark brown place ........ are not unique to Winter.

What I'm still trying to figure out is one accident, a Fatal.. You know the sign which you will often see as you go down the freeway .. On a bridge,,, that says something like "Jonesville Road" (The name of the road which is crossing the freeway at that point.

Well, the couple in a CAR, not a truck but a CAR.. HIT one of those signs.

That is a good 18 feet ABOVE the freeway.

Unbelievable !!! You can see the driver of the approaching semi attempt to avoid the SUV after he crossed into his lane, but nothing he could do. The SUV just descintigrates. I know I didn't spell that correctly.
