Residents rallied together to assist one another in pushing vehicles free.

Ryan Warner, a National Weather Service Skywarn Storm Chaser, was one of those stuck in the ice. Adding injury to the insult, he fell hard on the ice as he tried to help other motorists.

 “I did fall a couple of times trying to assist other vehicles out,” he said. “They just don’t understand just how unsafe these roads are right now,” Warner said.

Warner said drivers should not venture out.

“I would say if they can stay at home, stay at home,” Warner said.

Crystal Saldana was another one of those stuck.

“I was trying to get home from work. I just kept sliding. That’s all we’re doing is sliding everywhere,” Saldana said.
