This video from New Mexico shows how quickly and unexpectedly a car crash can happen in icy conditions. These drivers were driving too fast for the conditions.

Temperatures are dropping and it won’t be long until Texas has its first ice of the 2008-2009 winter driving season. Plan ahead and leave for your destination a little early.  Bridges in our area can remain icy and retain dangerous conditions for some time, even after the temperatures rise above freezing.
