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.

Fortunately, no one was injured and a camera was rolling to capture the carnage as the hill consumed about a half dozen vehicles. Follow the jump to watch the clip, and when you do, remember this winter driving tip: Sometimes your brakes can actually work against you.
