Black Ice Still Causing Problems
January 15, 2000

KING COUNTY - Another morning with cold temperatures causes more problems on the road.

Investigators say black ice was to blame.

The biggest problem area was westbound on I-90 near Fall City.

A car hit the black ice and flipped over.

Firefighters were responding to the initial crash, when another car hit the ice and plowed into the back of the firetruck.

A firefighter was pinned between the two vehicles. It looked bad, but the firefighter only suffered minor injuries.

Police say the crash serves as a reminder: you can't see black ice so if conditions are cold enough for it to form, slow down.
