Icy road spins car into ditch
WOODINVILLE--A 1967 VW Bug hit a patch of ice on N.E. 172nd St, spun across a lane of traffic, snapped a telephone pole in half and came to a rest upside down and backwards in a creekbed near Hollywood Hill Elementary the afternoon of January 9. The 17-year-old male Woodinville High School driver wasn't injured in the crash. He had been wearing his seatbelt, and was traveling at 20 MPH. A nasty sheet of ice extended across the street where the boy had lost control of his vehicle. The victim said he'd spent two years restoring the vehicle.
