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.

“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.

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.MORE NEWS: Fund Helps Train Nurse's Aides For Free
