You drive at those speeds under conditions like that, you deserve it

Granted I agree the rule that "You stay in your car" is the standard but maybe not so much in this case.

Lots of people standing around in the middle of the road, some in harm's way.  No one walks a couple hundred yards upstream of the crash site to wave down oncoming speeders?

Well a lot of those people were too dumb to drive for the conditions themselves. It's not too surprised that wouldn't have occurred to them.

Darwin was definitely out back smoking a blunt during this one... Nobody (from this video's perspective) was reduced to a bloody greasy stain on the highway..

Pretty farking amazing.

I can't tell what happened on the right side, it looks like water.

People getting out of their cars, wow that has got to be the DUMBEST thing ever.

And all because people don't understand that you don't drive like maniacs during a snowstorm.

OK i found better footage it's definitely just the side of the road, not water. Can't see anything in that video.

I like the forethought by the driver of the Wal-Mart truck to just roll up slow like and do a cameo for the traffic cam.  Can't teach that.

Wow. Lots of stupidity all around.

1) Drive slowly in winter weather, especially if roads haven't been cleared. Make sure you can see at least two or three times farther than it takes you to stop. Slow down if precipitation or curves in the road limit your range of vision.

2) If an accident happens, MOVE YOUR VEHICLE OFF THE ROAD. Don't wait for police to get there, get it out of the line of traffic immediately, unless it would cause an additional hazard to do so.

3) Don't get out of your vehicle unless in a safe place.

4) Don't drive in tight bunches of cars (aka wolf packs), especially in inclement weather. Always make sure you have at least a few escape routes if you needed to break or swerve.

5) Speaking of which, don't oversteer in the rain/snow.

#2 Can't be stressed enough. Even if it's not a blizzard, get your damn car out of traffic lanes after an accident unless you're wheels side up.

CSB Warning

Almost slammed into some assclown one time on the freeway. Got a flat in the middle lane and just freaking stopped, got out, and was trying to wave off cars flying at 70mph at 11pm. I saw him and was able to weave out of the way. The 4 drivers behind me weren't so lucky. Never found out if that guy got turned into spaghetti.

Notice that the first ones to fly into the ditch and most of those that come up to the farkfest going WAY TOO FAST are the super-safe mega SUVs, that, you know. gots ALL WHEEL DRIVE so they're immune to physics.

I was also amused by the few that managed to steer around the mess without ever stoping.  I bet a bunch of car interiors needed a hose out real badly.

Why people feel they need to do 70 in those conditions boggles my mind
 
2013-12-10 01:47:06 AM
I've read news articles that blamed this on the snow and ice.

No, you can easily watch the videos and tell who the dumbasses are.

This wasn't caused by snow and ice, this was caused by bad drivers.

You assume everybody has common sense.  As that video showed, a lot of people had common sense and slowed down; it was just the maniacs who were in a hurry who caused all that.  Also, first thing I'm doing in a crash is getting the Hell out of my vehicle.  Lots of bridges on my way home; I'd rather take my chances with trying to dodge something I can see coming than being punted off a cliff.

/and yeah I could take the interstate home, but general rule of thumb is to avoid it if its too messy
//I may drive a little overcautiously, and actually have cars tucking in behind me, but quite a few drivers do not
 
2013-12-10 03:12:29 AM
About half in the vid people are getting their cars out of the way, and there were those who were thoughtful enough to wreck and end up on the shoulder or over in the ditch. The car that just stays there appears to be too badly damaged to drive, looks like the whole front end is hanging off so who knows what other damage it had. In any case, can't fault it for the happy fun time that comes at the end. That's all on the drivers.

All wheel drive is great for actually getting a vehicle going. It does nothing to improve your breaking ability. immunity to the laws of physics denied!
 
2013-12-10 04:23:20 AM
Between 1:38 and 2:13 there seems to be an overabundance of safe driving.
 
2013-12-10 04:29:27 AM
At 2:55 I thought that semi was going to end up in a bad way. Little did I know that at 3:03 some asshole was going to come flying down the highway to fark up everyone's shiat.

The people who left their cars in the middle of the road are most at fault for the accidents here, but there was a lot of speeding. What seemed to really fark everything up were the two cars trying to drive through the gap abreast. Not quite enough room there.
 
2013-12-10 05:07:32 AM
Every single person in that video was driving too fast for that road condition.  They should all be shot.

The stalled people should have gotten their cars off the road, but assuming they couldn't - everyone was still driving way too fast for those conditions.  fark 'em.

Ice is one of those things that's very trickey to navigate. When you start sliding on ice, no driving skill will stop you from loosing control. Lay off the gas and hope that a patch of snow or rougher ice allows for some traction.

Some basics here:

1) In bad weather do not drive unless you have to get to a hospital or to save a life. Nothing is that farking important.

2)If you have to drive, drive slowly, maintain more space between vehicles.

3) BUY LOTS OF ROAD FLARES! If you can't use your hazard flashers- you need a back up. Especially in a place like Wisconsin.

4) You can slide on ice in a 4 wheel drive as quickly as a 2 wheel drive. Your SUV is not a Godmode road device.

not true
there were a COUPLE that were driving safe for conditons, ESPECIALLY after the first couple of collisions.
Walmart truck is a perfect example.


DEAD SLOW is what is called for when going around an unattended accident.

This should be shown to the "you bunch of pussies, sheesh it's like everyone's afraid of snow, get the lead out already. This city just doesn't know how to drive in snow, going slow isn't going to protect your precious car any more than going faster" people.

2013-12-10 07:03:59 AM
I loved the people standing on the side of the road watching for the next cars to come along, spin out, and kill them. They're all special snowflakes, especially the two the caused the entire thing with their reckless speeding (it looks to me to be the same two impaled together blocking two lanes that led to all the subsequent crashes).

Some jackass died in my city today when got out of his truck to look at the damage after hitting a patch of ice and going into the ditch, then and some other jackass hit the same patch of ice, and ran him over/crushed him into his own truck. Good times in Alberta.. we've got far too many asshats in Canyonaros or BMWs with way more money than brains, and they all act as if a set of winter tires makes them immune to the laws of physics. I wouldn't give two shiats normally, but transit in Calgary isn't good enough so I have to share the road with them. Sure would be nice if the Po-Po did some ticketing of people who pull into an intersection when it isn't clear to proceed. I learned that shiat the first week of Driver's Ed, yet obeying that law here is just an opportunity for someone else to cut into your lane in the middle of the intersection (also a traffic violation) - because your lane looks momentarily faster naturally.

Fark me. I need to sit on a beach.
 
2013-12-10 07:21:09 AM
Almost every last one of those idiots were driving way to damn fast for those conditions, and they say us Texans can't drive on snow and ice. At lest we have an excuse, we only get roads like that once or twice per winter, these morons get that for months up there.
 
2013-12-10 07:38:50 AM
That was way more entertaining than I thought it would be.
 
2013-12-10 07:38:57 AM
I they had all been in 4x4 Tahoes, this could have all been avoided!  All you need to do is watch the commercials to know that!
 
2013-12-10 07:40:38 AM
That is a very dense collection of extremely bad drivers and poor critical thinkers in one very short stretch of highway.
 
2013-12-10 07:42:34 AM
The really scary item about this incident was listening to the scanner. No immediately available ambulances, no flight for life, extraction units delayed, etc. multiple towns were called for help and very little was coming initially because of several other major accidents. The day after this, all of our roads were clear.
Three people ended up dying in the area, several hospitals had to call in extra trauma staff, etc. one of the people who died was not wearing a seatbelt. That could have saved her life.

The last couple of weeks we've had some kinda crappy weather, and the next day at work, one of my co-workers has kinda laughed at me because he's passed my 4WD SUV in his front-wheel drive sedan.  I'd rather be safe than dead.

2013-12-10 08:04:10 AM
So the consensus here is that the people who wrecked are primarily the cause for what happened after that and the drivers who didn't slow down a bit when seeing vehicles stopped in the road are blameless? I have to drive in conditions like this all the time so I want to be sure of how to behave.,

Bad road conditions don't scare me, other idiot drivers scare me.   It only takes one jackhole doing 60 in 4" of slush/snow to try and pass you to start something like this.  The people wandering around the edge of the road on the right hand side must have experienced severe head trauma.  That must be the case as no one can be that dumb, can they?

If you have to get out of your car, and unless you are a first responder, GTFoff the road and walk straight towards the ditch - and keep going at least 150 ft beyond, to avoid being a bowling pin.

Ok... serious question. What is the level of IQ required to figure out that standing in the middle of this is 'not a good idea'?

I would be out of my car - cautiously - and then getting as far away from this clusterfark as I can. 500 yards would be my goal. PERPENDICULAR to the hwy.
