YIKES! Scary video... Black ice NOT good.

I saw this and my heart sank!! Feel so bad for these poor people.
Black ice is a very back thing.

Black Ice Caused This Truck And Fifth Wheel Trailer Crash

Was glad this wasn't a video of ours though. . Very thankful no one in my family was injured at all. Pickup is replaced and we are planning to replace the Sabre in three months or so. This accident on this thread could've been much worse too. I hope to not travel with camper on wintry road conditions in the future. The intestate where we were was dry, other than the couple hundred feet of ice we found...

I'm getting ready to de-winterize my Rv and head south in ten days. So hoping there is not black ice along 95 in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, like there was last year at this time. Black ice is scary enough in a car or SUV

Well. Today it was 73degrees but who knows, by next week we could be back to wintery conditions. We had some really bad snow and ice storms in feb and March last year. Stay safe

My friend and I were suppose to leave on a trip early one morning, the weather was very different then the forecast, we had fog so bad that you couldn't see more then 20 to 30 feet in front of you and to top it off we had black ice. I didn't mind the 4 hour delay, I was afraid of what was in that video.
