Motorists Scream as Vehicles Slide Down Icy Austin Hill

Texas resident James Bates captured several videos of out-of-control cars sliding down a hill in an Austin neighborhood on February 16.

The record-setting wintry conditions in Texas were expected to continue on February 17, the National Weather Service said, with an overnight system “shaping up to be the worst of all the winter events over the past week.”

The videos show cars bumping into each other and skidding down the hill as panicked screams are heard.

Bates told Storyful that no ambulances or police showed up. “Everybody walked away fine and there were no injuries,” but added that the vehicular skidding “was happening all day.” Credit: James Bates via Storyful
