Since 2003, I have personally witnessed at least 42 vehicles involved in accidents (as they happened) on the Fort Hill Bridge! Many these accidents were caught on camera. Here are a few links to photos and videos:
The toll at Oakwood/Fort Hill this morning was nine accidents/spinouts, eight of which are on camera. The culprit was a very slick coating of freezing rain and sleet that was present on the bridge only. I assembled this quick video clip (click to play). Watch the first car for the flash of lightning and low rumble of thunder as the accident happens:
Here is another clip of lightning during this episode of "thundersleet/thunder-freezing-rain" at a temp of 30°F:
As I finished shooting aftermath b-roll, the freezing rain quickly changed to snow (as you can see in the video). Already close to 3 inches outside now, and the roads are covered. However, after this morning's events I think I am calling it a day. I may venture out later to get some stills.
