HD DASHCAM CLIP: Accident caught on dashcam in Alton

One of the stronger snowstorms I've seen in the St. Louis metro since I moved here occurred today. The impact to traffic was rivaling all I'd seen so far. I first went up to Alton, catching this accident on my dash camera. The minivan had just been in a minor fender bender before rolling into the traffic light (click for video).

I had also stopped to help push vehicles, but ended up needing pushed myself once I was stopped on the ramp!

Here's a close-up of sleet pellets at the onset of the event:
