carefully in bad weather, especially in ice and snow. Not a pretty sight.

I learned to drive on that kind of stuff 50 years ago. Knew what what going to happen the minute he started going toward the slush in the middle of the road. And if he was running snow tires all the way around, he might have recovered okay, but he over reacted and did not have the traction to stop it.

NO, no idea just found it on that site and passed it along to hopefully have drivers slow down in any type of weather.

Dunno about the passenger seat - I can't see that ANYONE in that small truck could possibly have survived.
There's a good chance that was a 100mph closing speed accident -simply not surviveable.
It would have been very quick - the guy I feel sorry for is the semi driver; through no fault of his own he killed someone. That will live with him forever!

Both a careless and inexperienced driver. If you look at a couple of times, the driver drifted into the slush in the middle to stay farther away from the vehicle he was passing. When the slush pulled him/her to the left, he/she over corrected to the right and then froze rather than counter steer.

Going WAY too fast for conditions. Most likely the tire tracks were black ice in spots and the slush was partially frozen. Snow tires all the way around don't help on those surfaces. Studded tires a little better, chains best but wouldn't last a mile on relatively bare pavment.

I would agree the closing speed about 100 MPH and if anybody survived in the SUV a true miracle was caught on film. It literally exploded.

Looks like the film was a police dash camera and the background noise was either radio static or studded snow tires.

THE BIG SECRET IN DRIVING IN THOSE CONDITIONS ISN'T BEING ABLE TO GO FAST, IT'S BEING ABLE TO STOP!

33 years on CHP, much in snow areas, so I speak from experience.
