GREENSBORO, N.C. — Winter weather took a toll on Triad cars Sunday and Monday.
Troopers told WFMY News 2 they had some trouble keeping up with all the accidents across the Triad because there were so many. One of those wrecks happened on I-73 in Greensboro.
A woman in an Audi SUV lost control of her vehicle, as she tried to exit onto Wendover Avenue, and drove into a deep ditch.
“I’m just very shaken because I thought I was going to flip over and I was going to die,” said the woman, who asked not to be named.
Fortunately, the woman is OK, but her car was one of dozens stuck on the sides of roads overnight in Greensboro.
GREENSBORO, NC — Once the snow, sleet and freezing rain stop, wash your car … or get it washed! It’s important to get the salt and brine off your car’s paint as quickly as possible.
And when you do, Allen Roy, the owner of Roy’s Automotive in Greensboro says, don’t skip the undercarriage. If you don’t wash off the brine, it can eventually eat away your car’s frame.
“That’s the part people miss,” Roy said. “That salt gets up on the frame underneath the body of the car and starts to deteriorate.”
The easiest way to get all the salt and brine off is to take it to a car wash and ask for the ‘underbody wash.
