"Member when Freya turned into an ice skating rink in 2010? Yeah! I member!" - Member berries recalling the 8-car pile up in 2010 on Freya.
We looked at the calendar the other day and thought, "Hey wasn't it about this time of year when Freya turned into an ice rink and a bunch of cars piled up?"
The answer was yes.
It was December 19, 2010 to be exact. We thought about waiting until the six-year anniversary to revisit it, but honestly, like a child waiting for Santa on Christmas morning, we just couldn't wait.
Between 10 a.m. and noon, Freya near 13th was an absolute mess. Citizens ended up shutting down the road until City crews arrived to take care of the problem, but not before a lot of damage was done. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
It's a great reminder as we head into what appears to be a long winter of treacherous driving to be careful and drive for the conditions.
Happy winter, everyone! Drive safe!
