PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After cars went sliding out of control on Fallowfield Avenue in Beechview, people are taking precautions in case there’s a repeat of the icy conditions Wednesday morning.

Felicia Aiello parked her car at the top of the hill after witnessing the crashes Tuesday morning.

“Just seeing the collisions, the impacts, it was awful,” Aiello said.

James Byron positioned his vehicles facing up the hill instead of down. The move was made after the road resembled a demolition derby earlier in the day.

Public Works Director Rob Kaczorowski addressed the video seen on KDKA at a previously scheduled meeting to explain the city’s new snow plan.

He also said a full crew will be out overnight, and they’ll call more workers in if need be.

“Our main concern is going to be icing. Hopefully, the temperature doesn’t drop so fast that the rain that comes down doesn’t ice up on the streets,” Kaczorowski said.
