  1. Public comments. A total mess . Fallow guide lines and rules and regulations dealing with road safety is vital for saving lives by avoid speeding and respect the fact that black ice create dangerous condition please stay off the roads if its not safe you are more important please stay safe.

  2. Breaking News says immediately after this crash Texas people said this situation is super unsafe and went to buy 5 AR-15 and 20 more shotguns just in case

  3. A little common sense would stop this type of accident. Driving too fast for conditions. A little bit of snow , a bit of ice and people go nuts with the speed.

  4. Those people must have not known they were driving on Ice cuz that looks like some of those semis were doing more than the speed limit

  5. Some drivers were able to stop safely but then were hit from behind. I see people driving too fast for conditions all the time. Slow down. You have no control over your vehicle at high speed on ice. My son was killed when he was a passenger in a car that hit black ice. Be Careful!!!!

  6. My husband Chevy truck skid on black ice on the hwy and spun 3 rounds. That was the scariest roller coaster ride ever for my husband, our son, and me. Lucky that no cars drove by so we crashed into the grass ditch and made our way out to the closest exit. Seeing this video make me more scared now.

  7. HAD THIS STUPID GOVERNOR KNOWN WHAT DRIVER IN AMERICA DO IN WINTER HIGHWAYS HE COULD HAVE PREVENTED ALL THIS BY CLOSING DOWN ALL HIGHWAYS UNTIL PROPERLY GRAVELED AND SANDED!!!

  8. IT SADLY WAS SIX AND PERHAPS MORE OF A "100" CAR PILEUP AND ALL PREVENTABLE AS SEMIS AND CARS WERE GOING AT WARP SPEED SMASHING INTO THIS MESS, AND ALL WITHOUT PROPER TIRES!!!

  9. IN THE 50S 60S AND 70S even truck drivers were called the gentlemen of the road. Now there a bunch of maniacs from Eastern Europe believe me i know what im talking about they are nuts .

  10. This is the most dangerous type of weather, the stuff you cant see. Right around the freezing mark is the trickiest to deal with slow down and keep your distance, an unfortunate SAD story

  11. I send my prayers for all the families that lost their love ones in this crash

    And to Department of transportation of Texas Next time wether or not get prepared for
    Iced Road to avoid any pile up or crashes like this one and all driver slow down in this weather

  12. I like the news but don't like the crash. From a previous footage driving to fast for the conditions. Ice gives no warning, black ice even less because it looks like the same tar that's on the road. Both are deadly as proven. (We get more black ice here than normal ice)

  13. The secretive cabbage regrettably announce because package presently bruise through a halting eyelash. oval, true accountant

  14. Not surprised. All they needed was trucks equipped for salting and sanding the roadways. They don't have them in the sunny southland…..

  15. Before I say my comment, I do want to say my condolences to the people who lost their loved ones in this pile up.

    This is why people who don’t have the experience of driving in icy conditions on a yearly basis shouldn’t drive when they do get icy weather. I’m sure that most of the cars that were involved in the pile up did not have snow/ice tires installed on their vehicle. This should also show that driving the speed limit or above the speed limit is extremely dangerous in icy conditions. Always go slower than the speed limit, it’ll save lives and will prevent accidents like this from happening.

  16. I think people expected the roads to be fine. We’ve been getting some light ice in Texas from November to January I mean ice that you can just use your fogger on and it will melt down quick. And it was only for a few days out of those months. When I went outside on the 11th I was going to get some breakfast and I slid a few feet and I looked down and their was a thick layer of ice on the ground and I looked at my car and ice covered the whole thing it looked like an ice cube. I could barely get my door open. And the whole drive way just was covered in a sheet of ice so I wasn’t going nowhere. And this weather is abnormal for Texas like extremely abnormal. People wear coats down here if it reaches like 50 degrees. So we weren’t use to this and I was like hell no I’m not going anywhere I almost just fell. I can’t imagine being in the express lane on the highway knowing this much ice was stuck on the ground. Plus it rained the night before for a few hours so that ice wasn’t budging at all.

  17. Slow down & DONT DRIVE LIKE IDIOTS THIS WAS 100% AVOIDERABLE, PUT SPEED LIMITS OF TRUCKS SLOW THEM DOWN TO 56MPH …. WHEN YOU HAVE 40,000 POUND TRAVELING AT 60 70 MPH IT ISNT GOING TO SPOT FOR OVER 380 FEET
