Flying ice is damaging Tri-State cars
CINCINNATI (Adam Clements) -- Drivers in the Tri-State are feeling the effects of the ice and snow, in more ways than one.
Reports of snow and ice flying from the tops of cars and trucks on the interstates are putting drivers in dangerous situations.
Seth Holt, of Pleasant Ridge had little time to react when he saw a large chunk of ice sail off the roof of the tractor trailer driving in front of him. He tried to swerve out of the way, but it was too late. It completely shattered my glass all over the car, said Seth. By the time I sort of collected myself and realized that I was okay, I saw the delivery truck way ahead of me, and I don't think he had really any clue of what had happened.
"I tell you what, it's been raining cars. We've had them coming in either on tow trucks or by themselves, but with this significant ice event, we've had a lot of broken glass around here," says Joel Timmons of Mel's Auto Glass.
Seth urges other drives to take the time to scrape off the tops of their cars, to save other drivers from going through what he did.
