Snow fell across London on January 24, prompting several weather warnings across the area and creating less than ideal road conditions for some motorists in the suburb of Uxbridge.
A London resident was out for a walk enjoying the snowfall when he saw several cars sliding into a street barrier on Long Lane in Uxbridge.
“I saw a few cars sliding first and thought, ‘We’d better warn them,’ but it was no use. These cars were fitted with summer tires and didn’t stand a chance against the black ice,” the source told Storyful.
The source then decided to record the vehicles as they attempted to make a turn, then slid across the intersection into a gate on the other side of the road.
“I saw 6 accidents in 15 minutes. No matter how slow they went, they still crashed,” he said. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful
