A vehicle in the westbound lanes of interstate 80 lost control on icy roads, crossed the median and hit a semi-truck head-on. "In his own driving lanes, he's passing vehicles. The other vehicles are slowing down and he's not paying any attention." This accident, taped February 10th, on the dashboard camera of a Lincoln County Sheriff's Department patrol car is an example of how dangerous slick roads are for travelers. "How quickly something can go wrong when you're dealing with winter conditions and icy conditions out on the roads." The driver of the pick-up truck wasn't seriously injured. An accident further down the interstate had slowed traffic and so the semi wasn't going full posted speed.
