Re: rolled his truck - going UP the on-ramp

According to the news report, it was a lady, her daughter, and 2 grandkids. There is an auto parts store right opposite the on ramp; they left their water sprinklers on...in 24* weather. The truck hit the ice, she lost control...and rolled it in the grassy median. The driver ended up on the freeway; the kid/grandkids were pretty much OK.

Scary stuff....I'm wondering how fast she was going.....

Re: rolled his truck - going UP the on-ramp

Well, now I'm wondering if the water sprinkler system didn't freeze and break open.
An hour ago a huge 66 inch water main broke along a major road here. It's about 19 degrees F in DC. A wall of fridgid water hit commuters cars, washing them far down the street. It looks like everybody is okay. Several helicopter basket rescues and swift water boat rescue teams plucked folks from their swamped freezing cars.
Pretty scary.
