VIDEO: March 17, 2007 numerous icy road car crashes, Charleston, WV

NOTE: this is an outdated video page that may not be operational. Please visit the Youtube Channel to find this and many other videos in full resolution (HD when available).

The camera catches six out of more than twelve accidents on the I-64 bridge at the Oakwood interchange in Charleston on Saturday, March 17, 2007. Thankfully no one was hurt in any of the incidents.

"Bridge Ices Before Road" - those signs you see at nearly every bridge and overpass are there for a reason! Pavement on solid ground is exposed to cold air on only one side - but a bridge is exposed on all four sides, meaning it cools much faster than the road surface when temperatures drop. When you see rain or snow falling in cold weather, prepare for icy bridges, even if the rest of the roads are only dry or wet.
