Winter Weather Causes Driving Woes

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Hour after hour of snow in the last few days means we've all had those moments where we've had to brave getting behind the wheel.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Hour after hour of snow in the last few days means we've all had those moments where we've had to brave getting behind the wheel.

Most people made it to where they were going without an issue, but some were not so lucky.

"It was really slippery, like here and snow was falling,” says semi driver Mikhail Pshichenko.

This truck driver is looking at Tuesday's clear roads and sunny skies with a little bit of frustration.

"Right now it is really good road, but then,” says Pshichenko.

The winter weather from Monday night is how Mikhail and his truck ended up on its side on the side of the road.

"I did not have time to scare,” says Pshichenko.

Tuesday KOLR10 found Mikhail climbing out of his truck.

"Just getting my stuff to change,” says. Pshichenko.

Tow Truck and Recovery business owner Judd Zembsch described his business since last Friday with one word:

"Crazy.”

Judd'Z Inc. Towing & Recovery has been pulling out a few big rigs after this last round of winter weather.

"This is the second tractor trailer we've done today. Three MoDOT trucks,” says Zembsch.

They could only recover part of Pshichenko’s truck.

"This one here will have to be unloaded because the wall is broke on it," explained Zembsch.

Zembsch says drivers need to remember they have their lives and the lives of other drivers in their hands.

"People should be careful, if you don't feel comfortable doing it you shouldn't be out in it in the first place," says Zembsch.

Pshichenko said he'll reconsider trying to power through the storm next time.

"I think to not be so confident, just if it is night, if it is snowing get rest and go in the morning,” says Pshichenko.
