Ice still on roads, cars Wednesday


The icy weather caused plenty of problems on streets in the Mobile area, but one of the most slippery areas may have been along Shelton Beach Road in Eight Mile.

People who live in the area said about a dozen cars slipped off the road during the day near the corner of Iva Loy Drive.

The problem is the road slopes down to the side, and drivers couldn’t keep traction.

Bessie Johnson was one of those drivers.

She said, “As we were waiting, other cars were coming, and they were sliding. There were 10 to 15 cars that slid.”

Fortunately, no one was reported hurt.
