Towing companies busy as road conditions continue to deteriorate

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A winter storm barreled through the Pine Belt Tuesday, leaving treacherous driving conditions in its wake. Towing companies have been busy pulling vehicles out of ditches and off the side of roads.

"If you don't need to drive, don't," advised Robert Bradford, manager of Billy's Auto & Towing. "We've pulled at least 15 out today, sliding everywhere."

Bradford reported that approximately 30 vehicles were retrieved Tuesday night.

Although the storm has passed, icy roadways still pose a threat. As temperatures fall into the teens Wednesday night, any ice that melted during the afternoon will likely refreeze.
