    You see it all the time, people who don't clear their cars of snow and ice before they hit the roads. Failing to properly clear vehicles can have deadly consequences. One New Hampshire family had a very close call.

    Just before 11 a.m. Saturday, 35-year-old Lisa Beauchemin was driving a Volvo wagon with her two young daughters on Route 111 near the Windham town line. A sheet of snow and ice flew off another vehicle, shattering the Volvo's windshield.

    Beauchemin was able to safely pull off to the side of the road. The driver of the other vehicle did not pull over.

    Officers from the Hudson Police Department responded to the accident.

    Beauchemin and her daughters weren't injured.

    Officials say they'd like to remind motorists of the importance of completely clearing vehicles after storms. Drivers who have snow or ice come off their vehicle and hit another is responsible for any injuries or damages it causes.
