Wintry weather causes traffic troubles

icy road

With ice covering most of Mobile County, there have been quite a few traffic troubles motorists have faced who we’re trying to navigate the slippery roadways.

One woman who didn’t want to show her face was trying to make it out if the westbound Wallace Tunnel toward downtown Mobile when she got stuck on a ramp covered with ice.

She said when she first started skidding, she was scared.

“Oh my gosh it was awful. I was terrified. When they say stay indoors that’s what you need to do but I wanted to go home,” she said. “Everything was good until I got here and I thought all this was sand but it’s ice. I’ve  been crying and calling 911.”

An hour later, the woman was rescued and on her way back home.
