Even for those areas that are incredibly familiar with the treatures of snowfall, there can be situations that come about where even the most well-versed travelers are unable to handle the conditions afoot. Not only are the climate conditions enough for anybody to have their hands full, but having to pay attention to the mishaps by other drivers can even make things more complicated. Judging not only the icy road conditions but drivers that have piled up on the highway here really seems to be a motivating factor for a pileup.
On the snow covered highway in St. Louis, we catch up with a group of drivers who probably just want to make their way home at this point. When it gets to the point where snow is piling up on a main artery like this one, it’s probably time to pack it in, no matter how capable a vehicle might be in inclement weather. However, going home simply might not be an option as these drivers are managed to quite literally slide themselves into a predicament where they simply wouldn’t be able to move and have become nice and stuck on the highway, making themselves a group of sitting ducks.
Luckily for these drivers, a good samaritan would make himself known, presenting himself as a hero in a Chevrolet Silverado. While the other vehicles here, including an 18 wheeled semi truck, might have not had what it would take to break free from the shackles of this particular set of conditions, the driver behind the wheel of this Silverado would be confident enough to hook up to these stranded people and come through in the clutch, pulling them out of harm’s way as the truck wouldn’t hesitate to flex its muscles, proving to be the beast that everyone that night needed.
