Icy Pittsburgh hill becomes the scene of automotive carnage – Click above to watch video after the jump


The east coast is under attack. The assailant? Mother Nature. Snow and rain continue to hammer this part of the nation, and when a downhill section of a road in the Pittsburgh town of Squirrel Hill became covered in ice yesterday, vehicular mayhem ensued.
