Freezing Rain Causes Slick Roads

  In Sulphur Springs, the rain started coming down around 3:00 p.m.. As the temperatures dropped to the mid-thirties, it turned to sleet, but melted as soon as it hit the ground. Around 7:00 p.m. the rain started coming down again and turned to ice on people's car. The roads got slick out there. DPS says drivers need to slow down.

  "Best thing to do while driving if you hit a patch of ice and slide is to slow down and let up on the gas and don't hit the brakes," said Trooper Bill Reese, Department of Public Safety. "That's the worse thing you can do is hit the brakes because that will cause you to go into a slide and lose control of the vehicle." Also, turn into your skid. If you're going to have to be out on the roads TXDot has a toll free number that will give you information about highway conditions. It's 1-800-452-9292.
