Um, I drove Parrots Ferry all the way to Hwy 4 the very same morning around 8:30am. It was just as icy for me as it was for him, and I didn't crash.
If the ice was to blame than myself and every other vehicle on that road should've wrecked as well.
I'm sick of the weather taking the blame for bad/inexperienced drivers.
Parrotts Ferry is always icy this time of year --- why did the road crews wait until someone had an accident before sanding the roadway? Apparently, it is not important, because the road is worse this morning and nothing has been done to sand the road again. Does someone have to be killed in a crash for the people in charge of the roads to check the roads and maintain them in icy conditions? Our tax dollars are not at work, they are asleep at the wheel.
Regulate your speed to drive the roads according to existing conditions. It is not the roads fault... Stay alert, watch for changing conditions and drive acorrdingly. Geeeze....it seems so simple!
Headline should read "Speed was a factor"... slow down people!
