Whole road icy

Reported in the Ice category by Selby Coysh at 10:39, Sat 21 January 2017

Sent to Devon County Council 1 minute later

Driving home at around 18:00 from bideford to torrington on the gammaton road. Just before woodhouse farm there is a steep hill, it was dark and I was only driving around 20mph and crashed my car in to the hedge because of the ice. I have more pictures on my phone of the whole road just covered in ice. It was -2 degrees when it happened, when I arrived back there this morning to take pictures it was 1 degree. I also have a video that my partner took of me trying to get up the hill and the entire car sliding back down. I phoned the police and reported the problem, they said to call devon county council, spoke to someone on the out of hours number and they said they will inform the council, the road hadn't been gritted and there are no signs, luckily there was no on coming vehicles as it would be a very different story. More cars were attempting to get up it this morning but couldn't. I have quite a lot of damage to my vehicle which I have also taken pictures of, this is my reason for putting in a claim.
