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.
