Eastern Iowa woman finds car frozen solid in block of ice

DAVENPORT (KWWL) -

When it's this cold, you want to start your car and let it warm up.

An eastern Iowa woman found hers frozen solid. This happened in Davenport.

The woman's car has been under a layer of thick snow and ice since a water main broke last week.

She's been trying to chip away at it with no luck.

Obviously, it's a problem.

"I could not even tell you how many inches thick of ice that it has on it," Davenport woman Amber Martin said. "Plow trucks were going by, and they were splashing water onto my vehicle, which I didn't know, and nobody came and told me about the situation."

In Davenport, there's actually a snow emergency in place. That means any car that is parked along a snow route has to be moved, or the owner could be fined.
