Photographer Donna Plummer came across this rollover accident on Highway 18 this afternoon, after a young woman with an infant in a car seat lost control on black ice, and flipped over onto its top. Fortunately thanks to seat belts and a car seat, nobody was hurt.
Black ice often cannot be seen. Monitor your car’s outside temperature. Anything under 40 degrees should be a sure sign that black ice can form in areas in shadows. Black ice will be a problem on the coast for the next few days and nights.
