Beware Frozen Sheets of Ice Falling on Cars, People

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Potentially hazardous sheets of ice remain dangling on the side of the many buildings.
LITTLE ROCK, AR--The worst of the winter storm is behind us but ice, lots of ice is sticking around. Potentially hazardous sheets of ice remain dangling on the side of the many buildings in Central Arkansas. Remaining ice is slowly melting leaving huge sheets of ice, hanging and often sliding off when you're walking or driving by.

If you've driven up and down Arkansas highways within the last day or so you've seen blocks or sheets of ice on the hoods or tops of cars when suddenly they fly off. In Texas, people captured video of huge solid sheets of ice crashing into cars a few stories below.

A local car repair shop says they see damage from these types of incidents, even though ice sheets often break on impact, sometimes it's just enough to do some damage.

"We had one last year, ice sliding off a metal roof, an awning, did quite a bit of damage to the hood," says Landers Collision consultant Cade Ward.

This year, while they've already had plenty cars come in, damaged from wrecks on icy roads, Ward says it could be a few days before you see insurance claims from falling ice.
