Accident on Lumley Road bridge at I-540 in Raleigh on Tuesday

Looking at timelapse video from yesterday, it appears that there was not much snow but more freezing rain problems for the Charleston area - compared to Huntington, which saw an all-snow event. Here is a compilation of news reports on the icy road event that affected a large part of the midwestern and eastern US on Tuesday. Well over a thousand accidents and least four fatalities have resulted in this outbreak - yet another reminder of why icy roads are the number one weather related hazard in the US.
