It was a rough morning on I-44 in Franklin County.

We drove up there from downtown St. Louis to report on conditions from 4:30am to 7:00am on Awake with News Four.  All was fine until we got to Pacific.  We found our first of two tractor trailers on the side of the Interstate.

It was too dark to get a photo of the one near Pacific off the east bound side.  It was just off the road.

About ten miles down the road in St. Clair we found another overturned big rig on the west bound side.  I called the Franklin County Sheriff's office and they told me the driver was not hurt.

While I was sending pictures back to kmov.com and standing on the shoulder, I was holding my smart phone in one hand and using my other hand to hold on to our SUV.   It was so slippery, falling was a very real possibility but I didn't.
