Nobody was hurt in this crash on the Sam Eig, ICC off ramp from 270 North.
Maryland officials say commuters are encountering especially unusually hazardous conditions on the roads.
With more than a day's notice, highway crews had ample time to prepare, spreading de-icing chemical onroads and warning drivers to stay home. Despite the prep, Thomas Fountain, Assistant District Engineer with the Maryland Highway Administration says highway off and on ramps in this weather can get tricky.
"A lot of time people underestimate highway speeds and they think they can hit the ramps going at the speed they usually go, but those freeze up first," Fountain says.
Brian Gorka sitting in his damaged SUV on the shoulder of an off ramp just learned that, the hard way.
"I was driving on the overpass off 270 off Sam Eig highway and unfortunately the gentleman back there lost control.
There were no injuries in the crash, but there was major damage.
"He hit the wall over there then hit my side," Gorka says. "I don't know if you can see it there on my door is the impact, and I guess he hit me so hard my tire popped off."
Overnight, officials recommend you stay off roads, which are expected to freeze over as temperatures drop into the single digits.
