Accidents on Ice Blamed on Sprinkler

by Elizabeth Ruiz

It was a rough morning for drivers who hit an icy patch on IH 10 in the Northwest Side . Cars were slipping and sliding on a patch of ice on the access road of IH 10 near Huebner Oaks Shopping Center.

After a few accidents,  police temporarily shut down the exit ramp from NB IH 10 to De Zavala Road.

There  was no precipitation to speak of,  but a nearby business left a sprinkler on and that  sent water onto the access road.  With  temperatures in the 20’s, the water quickly turned to ice.
