(WJBK) -

After the big snow storm last weekend we have all seen our fair share of snowy, icy roads around metro Detroit. But residents on Parkside Street in Detroit believe their street is, by far, the worst.

Several inches of ice has developed on the block after a water main break. The ice surrounded and encased several cars, which became undriveable. The sheet of ice spanned about 10 houses on both sides of the street.

Fox 2 alerted the City about the problem Thursday night. We are told help is on the way. A plow was sent out to push out and break up some of the ice on the streets. A repair crew is expected to be out on the scene Friday morning.
