Smash Hit: Repair Shops Having an Ice Time

From Punctured Tires To Front End Damage, Storms Take Toll On Cars

    All the white stuff on the ground has translated into a lot of green for area car repair shops.

    When a Great Neck driver skidded on the ice, he banged up his car. Happens to the best of them. But here's an example of how bad a winter it's been.

    "He came to pick up his car," said Michael Goltche, owner of King Point Auto,  "and the snow had him essentially in the middle of the road where he was parked. As he opens his door, another woman came by and hit him, it was two bad accidents basically because people have nowhere to put their cars."

    Yup, it's been that kind of winter.
